Even Adults Will Love This

This show has everything - suspense, drama, comedy, moral lessons, and the comradery of true friendship. It's a welcome change from bratty teens and pre-teens. These girls want to do the right thing and love their parents. They're there for each other and never display the kind of meanness so many movies have. There are mean girls in the series, but they're on the outskirts and clearly marked. I loved this show as much as the 10 year-old I watched it with. Her 7 year-old sister and 13 year-old brother enjoyed it too.
