Storyline

Laura's parents divorced when she was eight. Now, at thirteen, she lives with her mother, her stepfather, two stepbrothers, a stepsister, and a half-brother. She used to visit her father, stepmother (third stepmother) and half-sister, but now *another* divorce is in the works, so Laura visits her father and his pregnant girlfriend -- who's only six years older than she is. Who should she feel loyalty to? And is it any wonder she wants to run away from home? Written by Susan C. Mitchell <susanm@indirect.com>

Quotes

Laura Chartoff: He's the nicest guy though, ask anyone, but the thing is, he's almost 40, looks like he's 30, thinks like he's 20, and acts like he's 10. He's fun to play board games with.

Enjoyable
3 June 2003 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie with my two daughters which are thirteen and eleven years old. They both really liked the movie (so did I). I have never even heard of this movie till I seen it on starz family channel. I would give it a 8/10
