      Tionne W This movie is so good! The movie isn't just about a confused lesbian who stumbles upon her crush, instead they include more story and an accurate representation of a lesbian. The acting is great! The only thing I don't like is how fast things transition in Jane's life. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review Audience Member GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie because this is the first LGBTQQ flick centered around late middle school early high school where a child's body and mind under goes tremendous development. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Aww, Ellen Muth playing a baby gay! Good performances, and good writing, especially considering it's a Lifetime movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Made for cable Junk, but Muth is great in this role. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked this one. It hit on how often when coming out to other people, they think of themselves and how it effects them. Rather than how it is for the person going through it.
