If you come at Taylor Swift, you best not miss.
In an attempt to appear cool and hip to the pop life, the SAT prep book includes references to song lyrics from some of today’s biggest stars, like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and, of course, Swift. While the authors clearly went to great lengths to reach the younger set, they apparently didn’t bother to do some simple fact-checking to ensure they were quoting Swift correctly.
