Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (6 ):

Insightful and heartfelt, this drama series watches Zoe's metamorphosis from a shy, introspective teen to a confident young woman. Cleo's death changed a lot of aspects of Zoe's life, making her an object of curiosity at school and redefining her role in her family structure. The fallout isn't all welcome, and it accelerates Zoe's maturation, but overall she proves herself capable of the change.

Zoe Valentine deals thoughtfully with serious issues like death, loss, family discord, bullying, and homosexuality. In every case, Zoe emerges as a positive model of kindness, respect, and loyalty. She keeps others' secrets and picks up the slack at home, redefining her priorities as her family's and friends' needs change but always staying true to her own moral compass.
