Storyline

At the edge of adolescence, Tracy is a smart straight-A student--if not a little naive (it seems...she smokes and she cuts to alleviate the emotional pain she suffers from having a broken home and hating her mom's boyfriend, Brady.) When she befriends Evie, the most popular and beautiful girl in school, Evie leads Tracy down a path of sex, drugs and petty crime (like stealing money from purses and from stores). As Tracy transforms herself and her identity, her world becomes a boiling, emotional cauldron fueled by new tensions between her and her mother--as well as, teachers and old friends. Written by Miss Kittin

Moved, and inspired
29 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, This movie...

I honestly thought it was amazing. Not for just the acting (which was very good also) but the whole storyline.

Some people look at what these girl are doing and don't think its happening...but really it is...and i know this because i see it everyday right in front of my eyes...

I have friends who are thirteen who have smoked pot and cigarettes, Self-mutilated(cutting), drank many different kinds of liquor, have hit all 4 bases with guys...and there only 13...and my old best friend has been sucked into this vortex of rebellion and hatred and just dropped everything....to make a long story short this movie taught me the bad results of all these things...

My friends dropped me, her family, her religion and her whole life because someone else told her to....and watching this movie was a great inspiration not to do anything like this....

Go out and rent this movie immediately...its amazing the acting, the drama, the everything, right down to the way they film it.....
