Storyline

Freshman Jamie Bartlett is frustrated with high-school life. She wonders what it would be like to be popular, where Marco the hunk might notice her and snooty Sawyer would remember her name. To escape the pressures of school, Jamie retreats to her journal, weaving a tale about teen heroine Isabella ("Is"), who's beautiful, self-assured, and popular and can effortlessly zap any pesky person out of her way. When she accidentally turns in her journal as a homework project, Jamie wins a writing contest and finds her books on shelves nationwide. Suddenly she's caught up in the whirlwind of photo shoots and guest appearances and starts to lose touch with her friends and herself. Meanwhile, Is becomes a real presence for Jamie, though no one else can see her. As Jamie's stardom grows, her literary alter ego pops in and out of her life to influence every move she makes. Jamie eventually becomes disenchanted with her new life and in the end must decide whether popularity is worth sacrificing ... Written by Anonymous

Three Cheers for Read it and Weep!
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie shows the trials and tribulations of high school and how completely awful it is when you talk or in this case write about "the truth". Jamie Bartlett tries to find her way through her freshman year unnoticed but when her private and personal journal gets published into a book by accident things get a little "different". Read it and Weep is a nice movie that shows that sometimes movies can be just as great as the book! The book was, of course, better but Disney did a great job molding it into an Original Movie. The book "How My Private Personal Journal Became a Bestseller" is awesome. To get more of the vibe for the movie I suggest you read the book first though. All in all, in my opinion,I LOVED IT!
