Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main character is a sassy foster kid who vandalizes, shoplifts, and runs wild. She even participates in a con, lying to and manipulating the kind Lady St. Edmund. But ultimately, she turns around, and kids will get the happy ending they are hoping for.
- There's a girl fight with punching and toe stomping and slapping. The "bad guys" try to catch the kids and all sorts of ruckus -- including a Pink Panther-style sword fight -- follows.
- Though she's a tough girl, Casey doesn't push the curse word envelope. But British curse words like "bloody" are uttered.
- Social Behavior
- When Casey is bad, she's awful, but when she's good, it makes an impression. Casey has had a tough life, which causes her to act out and to mistrust people. But once she finds her true home, she puts her hustler's talents to good use.
- Casey sniffs out the con that Mr. Bundage is running and demands 10% of the take, plus a Ferrari. She looks at Ferrari brochures in her spare time.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- The foster dad drinks a beer, and adults drink wine with dinner, but no one is inebriated. Mr. Bundage smokes a cigar.
