12 year old daughter out of touch, unmotivated

My 12 year is constantly not wanting any help from me with school or to even talk about it. When I talk to her teachers they basically say she is not engaged. My daughter tells me she is working really hard and that she is trying to get better grades. She will even tell me an assignment or test is easy but then doesnt do well. She seems to be totally in denial or out of touch with reality. How do I get her take ownership and apply herself. I have tried offering rewards if she does well but this does not seem to help. Now with school almost over do I punish her over the summer by taking away time with friends, make her work with a tutor...I am at a lost
