This movie is sooooo good. I recommend watching this. I will definitely watch again. I would say it is for ages 7+. I did not think it is scary and I am nine. I liked the characters and they did a good job acting. My favorite part was when Maddy stuck the layout full twist in the competition. There was mean bullying but they all said sorry including Sally. Way better than the trailer. You should watch!
