If you liked the book then you will like the movie. Melinda could have been played by someone better than Kirstin Stewart, but aside from that it's perfect. Just like the book! Pretty much word for word! ;)
Postscript: every one should understand the dramatic importance of speaking up when something unspeakable happens to you.

This movie drags along too slowly to keep me interested.

Pretty mediocre.

It was really nice how the art teacher inspired Melinda to tell the truth through her artwork & how everyone finally believed the rumorof her rape. It is never easy to report a rape especially when no one believes you. Why do people always believe the guy is innocent? Althought the copy from HP library would not play all the way through.

A thought-provoking movie! Hopefully, it will provoke discussion! This movie is in a class of its own, .. Creative! I felt there were some holes in the story-line, though.. Over-all, I do recommend it for the teens to see it! It is a relatively enjoyable movie!

I think every teenage girl sould see this movie! So many girls at my school are quiet they never speak up. I know that what happened to Melinda is a sad thing that happens every day. But I think this movie brings hope. I was certainly moved by it.

It had parts that could have been done better but over all I think it was done just right.

Sorry, I just couldnt get with the program. It had flashes of brillance, but nothing really grabbed me. Stewart was average at best, and I found her hard to like. A sad story didnt help me any. Her Art teacher was great.
