Spencer is hyper-perfect, we all know that, but there's something about A that widens the cracks in her armor. When Mr. McAdam asks for an assignment Spencer doesn't have ready, A seems to sense Spence's stress and goes in for the kill. All it takes is a note from A to inspire Spencer to submit one of Melissa's old economics papers instead of doing the work herself.
“She hadn't cheated. Really. Well, maybe she had. But who could blame her? After A's message came in last night, she'd spent the whole night calling Wren, but his phone kept going to voice mail.” ~Flawless, p. 210
There must have been a lot of things racing through Spencer's mind when she hit SEND on that assignment. Do you think she stole Melissa's paper because she wanted to get an A? Because she was falling in love with Wren? Or was this just another mistake inspired by Spence's messed up relationship with her ultra-competitive sister?
