Watch How to Rock

How to Rock is a sitcom on television that is broadcast on the Nickelodeon cable network. Based upon a book entitled How to Rock Braces and Glasses by Meg Haston, the show stars Cymphonique Miller who plays Kacey Simon. The show follows the popular Kacey Simon, who was part of a group of mean girls at Brewster High School. Kacey is portrayed to be quite fashionable, preferring to wear skirts and dresses to jeans or t-shirts. She also appears very selfish with friends, often provoking trouble that she later works to get them out of.

After Kacey's status lowers upon wearing glasses and braces, the mean girls abandon her and she discovers new ways to enjoy life. For example, later she becomes the lead singer of a hip-hop, pop band.

Although she at first ridiculed members of Gravity 5, she joins them partly due to the influence of her friend, Zander. This occurs after she more clearly sees that by just being herself, she can make true friends who love her for who really she is, rather than her popularity. The group includes Stevie (played by Lulu Antariksa), Xander (played by Max Schneider), Nelson (played by Noah Crawford), and Kevin (played by Christopher O'Neal).

Gravity 5 develops a rivalry with The Perf's (short for Perfect), Kacey's former group. The rival band features former friends who have become enemies: Molly (played by Samantha Boscarino and and Grace (played by Halston Sage.

Molly Garfunkel (played by Samantha Boscarino) is the main antagonist and used to be Kacey's best friend. After Kacey realized that the only reason Molly liked her was because she was perfect, Kacey quit the Perfs group, resulting in Molly's rivalry and hatred.

It is very possible that Molly was merely waiting for the best moment to push Kacey out for good so that she could reign as the most popular girl at Brewster High School. Molly is a phony, appearing angelic to friends, displaying a very sweet, soft and warm personality to fellow Perfs, but is very cruel, snarky to Gravity 5 band members.

As Queen of the Perfs musical group. Molly is just as competitive and popular as Kacey. However, she spends her time masterminding an evil plot to destroy Kacey's standing. The pilot episode features her humiliating Kacey in front of a very large crowd of people. Stevie comes to the rescue, exposing her for harassing Kacey.

Kacey becomes even more confident and goes on a tireless campaign to take Gravity 5 to the highest heights possible while also climbing the school's social ladder. She writes songs, sings and dances.
