A sweet, realistic episode that spoke to me
2 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode continues Felicity's path on being an adult while the other children are curious about it and are disappointed to see her growing up too fast. Sara and Felix peek into her window and Felix steals Felicity's diary, curious about what she is doing behind that door. Felicity is about 12 or 13 and because of this adolescence, she's torn between wanting to be a child or an adult. I liked how Felicity was ashamed of her flaws because not many teenagers in fiction are.

I don't know any teenagers who talk about wanting to be adults but judging by my experience as a younger teenager and with other teenagers, we like to put on makeup and be outside by ourselves when it is getting dark, and even try to boss our parents around. It's like an impulsive thinking to us, we don't know if we're acting like grown- ups or not.

I liked how concerned the characters are and the realism of the consequences of trying to act older than you are. It was a pretty good episode and it did have some funny moments with the interactions of Cecily and her parents. Yes, she can be too unassertive but I still like her so far in this series.
