Storyline

Laura's parents divorced when she was eight. Now, at thirteen, she lives with her mother, her stepfather, two stepbrothers, a stepsister, and a half-brother. She used to visit her father, stepmother (third stepmother) and half-sister, but now *another* divorce is in the works, so Laura visits her father and his pregnant girlfriend -- who's only six years older than she is. Who should she feel loyalty to? And is it any wonder she wants to run away from home? Written by Susan C. Mitchell <susanm@indirect.com>

3 June 2003 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie with my two daughters which are thirteen and eleven years old. They both really liked the movie (so did I). I have never even heard of this movie till I seen it on starz family channel. I would give it a 8/10
