Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie includes the death of a major character in a drunk driving accident. This is powerfully but not graphically depicted, but it may make the movie too much for under-10s or even some sensitive under-12s. An adult character responds to a stressful situation by saying, "I need a drink," and an underage character gets drunk when he's upset over a misunderstanding. There's some PG-level language. The movie makes it clear that Terri thinks carefully about whether she's ready to kiss a boy, even though it's someone she really cares about. Another girl makes a reference to being "bad" to get the boy she likes, but it doesn't work.
