This earnest, family-friendly series highlights the importance of friendship and family, as well some of the challenges teens face when trying to "fit in" with the kids around them. Though she's sometimes rebellious, Caitlin's rather bohemian persona make her fun and easy to identify with. Meanwhile, her love of photography reminds young viewers to pursue a hobby that they love.

Although this teen drama is pretty tame (especially by today's standards), it does touch on some serious subjects -- including juvenile delinquency and the death of a parent. And Caitlin doesn't always make the best choices. But she learns from her mistakes, and as a result proves to be a positive role model for tweens and young teens. Bottom line? This show offers lots of positive messages and is a fun viewing choice for tweens and up.
