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

A lovely movie.
22 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Read It and Weep was a very good Disney Channel movie. It was enjoyable and interesting. You never really see a story based around writing, most Disney movies are about sports or singing. Read It and Weep had very likable characters too. Kay Panabaker definitely did a wonderful job as Jameson Bartlett. As well as Jason Dolley as Connor Kennedy, you really could connect with Connor and you felt emotion for him. I thought it was a great DCOM about friendship and highschool. It made me feel like highschool isn't supposed to always be peaceful. As long as you have your friends and are true to yourself nothing else matters. And I think that is a great message.
