Carol Says: This is not a bad movie. While I wouldn’t tell anyone “don’t miss it”, it is sweet in it’s own way. The main character, Nadine, is 17 and going through growning pains and being a teenager. She has a mother who I would not want as my mom, and a brother that she just cannot connect with. Her best friend is Krista.

Now I cannot tell you what happens, but the movie is mostly about Nadine and her emotional ups and downs. While it is not what my teenage years were like, I think many teenagers could relate to this movie. It has a sweet ending and I enjoyed the movie.
