The film follows Kelly Collins, who is forced to move upstate with her mom and stepfather. She must attend George Washington Military Academy, the school where her stepfather just became the Commandant. After having to leave her friends and everything she’s ever known behind, Kelly is faced with difficult decisions. She is bullied by the Cadet Captain and has a crush on a boy who is totally off limits. In the end, Kelly finally learns her way.
Disney Channel stars Hilary Duff and Christy Carlson Romano had the lead roles and seriously nailed their parts.

The transformation is seriously shocking, and we can’t get over how young all of the characters looked 17 years ago compared to what they look like now!
