Tay’s review published on Letterboxd:
so perfectly sincere and timeless, just like the original book—it never once downplays or cringes at the gravity of being a preteen girl, instead embracing all of the awkwardness and sweetness and weirdness of coming into your own. McAdams brings a new depth and warmth to Margaret’s mother, and it’s so refreshing the family unit never veers into melodrama. what makes Blume’s writing so special is that it’s always been about slice of life moments that feel universal.
Abby Ryder Fortson is also so damn good in this!!! where did they find her!!
