Sammy Baca has a talent for getting into trouble. Busted for her latest scheme -- selling gum in school to raise money for her very own smartphone -- Sammy is sentenced to roll all of the pennies from the school's penny drive for schools for girls in Afghanistan.
Reflecting on Sammy's penny roll detention, Sammy's math teacher, Ms. Dyer, gives Sammy an idea for taking the penny drive to the next level. The girls running the penny drive simply need to ask people to donate one penny a day for a month. The catch is that each person has to ask another person every day to donate one penny a day for the remainder of the month, and so on and so on. If the plan works, the girls could raise over twenty million dollars -- in theory. Sammy enlists the penny drive treasurer Katie in her scheme, and Katie in turn makes the school's reigning tween queen Hannah and her sycophant Emily unwitting accomplices.
