Worth a watch but wish there was more of an ending, a resolution. She was highly intelligent. They could have put her into classes matching her intellect. Also, just odd to me the way her mother had treated the father. The one girl being 'friends' with her only to criticize and not support her, eh... Not for nothing, but does the 'only' Latina character in the movie have to be 'gangsta'? You could have some smart, awesome Latinas, also she may have been smart but stealing her charger is not awesome and no accountability for that. Her 'sad' house was actually fairly nice, not for nothing. She looked too 'made up' to be in such an 'awful' life. A fair amount of cursing, which is not uncommon for this day and age. Would have loved for the Pearl character to get counseling. Her first 'real' relationship was straight to sex, not common, usually there are crushes and some in between things in getting to know someone, plus the dude was ugly! Way to stick to his 'principles', not. Did she have an abortion?? Idk, real hard to tell but that was the elusion. Repeated cycle of not telling a father about a child. She could have adopted, there are options. I also have to agree on the acting, straight from the start, I was thinking: "I would have reacted more after my mother's death." They tried.
