Quotes

Kristy Thomas: Dad, why did you come back if you're just going to hide?
Patrick Thomas: To see you. I missed you.
Kristy Thomas: Well, you could have came before. Nothing was stopping you.
Patrick Thomas: I tried.
Kristy Thomas: Dad, you sent like two postcards in five years, or something. I was always thinking you would come. You never did, ever. I wait for you every year, you never even called. You don't care about me and everyone who does care about me's mad at me. I can't do this anymore. I've never lied to my mom or my friends and since you've got here, that's all ...

Fun and Enjoyable.
20 January 2000 | by (Castro Valley, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

My friends and I used to love this book so much that every month we ran to the bookstore and buy them. Two of my favorite actresses are in the movie, Rachael Leigh Cook and Larisa Oleinik. This story is about Kristy meeting her real father and Stacey lying about her age to Luca and going to N.Y. The story is really good. Especially for little girls. The whole family can watch it. I recommend this movie to Everyone. I give 7 out of 10. Austin O'Brien('My girl2','Last Action Hero') is appearing as Rachael's boyfriend, Logan Bruno.
