Ashley (readerandwriter) Has anyone read this book or seen the movie version of it? I've read the book and I saw the premiere of the movie last night. The movie is so heartwrenchng and made me want to cry.

Janet I really wanted to watch it tonight but totally forgot about it! I haven't read it either.

Ashley (readerandwriter) Well it's new so it should play many times.

Emily  O (readingwhilefemale) | 487 comments I saw the movie. It was ok. I thought it was more for people like Bobby's mom than for Bobby. I mean, that's who it seemed to care about the most. I think it's more of a movie for mothers (especially mothers who want to feel good about their acceptance) than for teens.
Still, it's a good premise, and it's good to know that a movie like that can play and people won't throw a hissy fit about it. I guess that a showing of that movie, even if it's just on lifetime, means that people are getting slightly more tolerant? I don't know, but I hope so.
