10 September 1998 | by (MO) – See all my reviews

Soleil Moon Frye is a pregnant teenager, who has a cheating boyfriend and she is a girl from a poorer part of town and her boyfriend, Mark, is cheating on her with a more wealthier girl,Nicole. When Greg finds out that Soleil is pregnant, he murders her and hides her body. Then at a graduation party, Nicole finds Soleil's body on the beach and then she starts to become friends with Soleil's mom. Things start to link up that Greg was the one that killed her and it has a happy ending. I would definitely recommend watching this movie the next time it is on TV. Soleil Moon Frye is excellent.
