Excellent movie families with teens and middle school -high school audiences
29 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't miss the opportunity to see this! It's not just about being fat! Compelling story line touches on so many issues that teens struggle with. Story has many lessons, but the story rolls out in such a natural way that the it doesn't feel like you are learning lessons. You are engaged with the characters every minute. Lessons of empathy come naturally through the story line. The whole movie carries you to a new way of thinking and speaks to everyone in the audience. Powerful impact: it's worth every minute! The novel is an excellent companion, powerful read for any teen or adult, and great classroom tool. Teachers and administrators: Don't wait to add this to your curriculum. Youth Group leaders, pastors: add this to your program now!
