The Sugarfield Sugar Cookie
Sweet Southern Drama
Meet Stanley Westfield, a boy from the little town of Sugarfield whose dream is to become an Ophthalmologist. Worried he won't get into med school, he borrows the ID of a drunken slacker and takes the med school entrance exam as a practice run before retaking it under his real name.
Now, he's a 1st-year medical student and the owner of the second highest med school entrance exam score in history. This would have been awesome if he hadn't accidentally given Melvin Napier, AKA, the slacker, THE highest score ever recorded.
Suddenly famous, Melvin is pressured to attend med school and fulfill his enormous potential. With nothing better to do, he decides to give it a whirl. After all, how hard could it be?
But the chances of history's two highest scores coming from two boys from the same small town are less than zero, and the Undergraduate Dean of Medicine isn't fooled. He's sure they cheated. He just isn't sure how—not yet.
Join us in this light-hearted adventure as Stanley juggles the rigors of med school, staying one step ahead of the Dean and keeping a complete slacker from exposing it all.
