It's a great movie because it's not too scary, and it could really happen in real life. The story encourages girls to take chances and be themselves. It's cool to be smart and make mistakes. What I really liked about this movie is that Max was was a smart girl and everyone else had nannies but she could ride the subway by herself. Her family split up and her grandmother died but she lived through it and was brave to try something new but not forget the old.
