I was really looking forward to watching this movie, so excited that we watched it the same night it arrived!!
My family is hooked now!
We watched it with the girls and dad. The movie is based on the books by Beverly Lewis, and I haven't read any of them. I just can't find the time to actually read through a whole book right now, so it was great to be able to watch the movie.
It was funny, because while watching the movie, my 13 year old and I were talking about what we thought would happen next, the storyline was great and we were way off with our thoughts. It was really cool to see how much my kids got involved in the movie too (even hubby stayed awake to watch it!!)
We CANNOT wait to see the next one!! This was definitely a 2+ thumbs up from our family!!!
