Assignment:

Hoax:

Make a YouTube video

Pretend to have discovered your:

Decides that this would be a great project idea!

Her “long-lost twin”?


Her best friend and cousin…

Claire Linnahan

Age 16

They go to different schools, and are in different grades…


Yet Missy and Claire have been best friends forever….


So they make their video…

Even Missy’s friends are surprised how much they look alike!


Genevieve Candler

Age 16

Lives on Long Island

Her friends see the video…

…and think she is in it!


?

Missy & Claire

Genevieve
