Most negative reviews on here relate to the fact it does not fully follow the book, but as someone who never read the book I found this TV movie to be excellent. Ashlee Lauren who plays the young child Caitlin was outstanding. I was surprised that IMDB doesn't even give here a credit and I had to search elsewhere for who she is. Cathy Lee Crosby is also good in her role but the rest of the cast were not ass convincing. But it was the story that hooked me. I felt sad that any child had to go through what this poor girl did, and with such a high IQ it shows how the education and social systems fail such ones.
