The series follows a teenage girl named Carter Stevens (Reign‘s Kathryn Prescott) as she’s forced to accept that her entire life is built on a lie. Additionally, she has to adjust to a new life with her real family, including new parents David (Grimm’s Alexis Denisof) and Elizabeth (The Young and the Restless‘ Cynthia Watros).

(Look, growing up is hard for everybody, OK?)

MTV has ordered 12 episodes of the new series, scheduled to premiere July 8 at 10/9c with back-to-back episodes.
