Kate and Mollie, figure skaters and notorious pranksters, are in huge trouble after a prank gone wrong gets them both grounded for the summer and banned from their rink. During a sleepover, the girls get an email telling them that they officially qualify for a scholarship to the Henie Academy of Ice in New York with their whole team. After convincing their parents, Kate, Mollie, and their wacky misfit friends move to New York for a year. There, they find themselves at the bottom of the heap... and suspects of murder.
