She Gets What She Wants is about a high school student named Starla Grady. Starla is a popular student who is a head cheerleader and pageant queen in her small Texas town. She and her family host an orphaned French girl named Genevieve. Genevieve is a foreign exchange student who warms up to Starla’s friends and family before taking a turn to run Starla’s life. When Starla is struggling with French class, Genevieve volunteers to privately tutor her on the subject. Unbeknownst to Starla, Genevieve is faking her French speaking, leading Starla to fail in the class.

When Starla’s grades take a turn for the worse, she is kicked off the cheerleading squad. Genevieve joins the squad in her place and becomes the new head cheerleader. Soon, the roles are reversed as Starla soon becomes the unpopular student. She also loses her friends, respect among her peers, and ends up losing her boyfriend to a conniving Genevieve. Genevieve also takes Starla’s place in the News Anchor Competition. She frames Starla by placing drugs and a knife in her backpack. As it turns out, Genevieve was an old elementary classmate who Starla embarrassed on a constant basis. Because of this, Genevieve moved to France but returns to retaliate.

Starla is determined to get back at Genevieve for seemingly ruining her life. Although she never attained her dream in becoming a reporter or getting a scholarship for college, Starla soon reveals the true identity of Genevieve. Disgraced, Genevieve leaves to return to France. Throughout her ordeal, Starla believes that she is a changed woman despite her hopes and dreams being ruined. Genevieve returns to France with Starla's stolen ID card. She meets with an adoptive French family who assume that Genevieve is Starla, the exchange student. Genevieve continues to commit the acts of trickery and manipulation in France.
