I was disappointed to see that there was a secret relationship with a grown man in a position of authority and a 12 year old girl
10 August 2017 | by galatan-21980See all my reviews

I was disappointed to see that there was a secret relationship with a grown man in a position of authority and a 12 year old girl, a relationship that continued through texting and sharing photos after the "case" was over. Children and adults are not friends and a 12 year old girl has no business secretly meeting up with a 50 year old man.

The story line of a 12 year old girl who dreams of being a cop but is vulnerable and unsupervised by her single parent mom is not a unique one, however considering the threats to online dangers for youth I am surprised by the themes portrayed.
