Plot Outline:

At a strict all-girls school, Abbie and Lydia are inseparable friends. But when tragedy strikes, Lydia is left alone and soon after, fainting spells take hold of many girls (and even a teacher) at the school. The epidemic leads to questions - but some answers are not easily explained. -- Chris Kavan

She much reminds me of Emma Watson, another child star who became famous for a fantasy series and went on to a strong career after the series ended.
