After Davey's father is killed in a hold-up, she and her mother and younger brother visit relatives in New Mexico. Here Davey is befriended by a young man who helps her find the strength to carry on and conquer her fears.
Amy Jo Johnson,
If you ever wondered what a very young "Almanzo Wilder" looks like in a blue tuxedo or frolicking around in a hot tub, this is the movie for you. That's the only inspiring thing about the film. I read this "coming of age" Judy Blume book as a kid in high school... and it should have just stayed a book! A whole lot of the meaning in her novel got lost in this made for TV translation. If you should happen to catch it on a Sunday afternoon on a bad cable station as I did... just pass.
