Storyline

Aspiring 11 year old actress Vanessa and her three, fun-loving best friends savor their last summer before making the leap to middle school while embarking on four inspirational, sun-soaked adventures. As Vanessa prepares for the audition of a lifetime, Lizzie welcomes home her wheelchair-bound, war veteran brother; Jess contends with the pain of her parents separating; and a heavy secret weighs on the conscience of their new friend Peri. Before the summer has ended, all four girls will find the courage and friendship to face any challenge that life throws their way. Written by Anonymous

Excellent
7 December 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I just gave it a straight ten, this film totally surprised and charmed me. It completely avoids any cliché that seems to perpetuate in so many girls films. In this film girls are so refreshingly _not_ the little self - centered gigglers whose main and only subject are boys, and main plot is _not_ around petty fight that two of them had.

There are some deep and challenging events for kids at that age in the plot, and yet the movie is never a *drama*. It is represented the way kids handle it - just like you rarely see a kid just blocked - they accept and move on. It may appear light hearted, an it is in a way, but that is because it remains true to that particular perspective - kids cope with certain events, ups or downs, better than the adults do (obviously, not talking about extremes now).

Another point that I loved about the movie is that I have miserably failed whenever I thought that I had a particular character all figured out. I didn't. I loved the Valerie Mahaffey performance - brilliant. Girls as well.
