    A teenager movie I thought this movie was pretty good, I love the interaction between her and her parents, I don't want to give away the movie, I just think we take things for granted, like our families and what would we do, if we were in her situation, I don't know what I would do.. made me think.. The Entire teenage love thing has been done before, the interaction with her family and their friends, kept me watching and I'm a 47-year-old male.. Was this movie a tearjerker I don't know? It didn't feel like that, I was more shocked caught my breath.. Maybe a bit of a Greek tragedy.. Anyways you decide, just ones guys review

    Probably a good one for the almost teens. Good story but, for adults, it needs to have a bit more grit and reality.

    Teens will love this story and cry throughout most of it. Great performances by the actors but totally predictable. I wish I would have saved my money and watched on cable.
