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.

Sexual Content

Violence

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.

Language

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.

Consumerism

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.
