I was once a teenage girl like this
25 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fifteen and wondering what will happen in the future. Trying to figure out what you can and cannot do with boys without getting into trouble. Trying to figure out how to be as cool as I wanted to be without losing who I was becoming. I found this film very true-to-life, it reminded me of my cousins, nieces, and friends in this stage of life (and of course, myself). I only hope many young people will see it on DVD and many adults will take to heart the tentative movements this film portrays and give the kids a break.
