Heather H. from WASILLA, AK
Reviewed on 6/17/2013...
I was utterly enchanted by this film. I picked it up because I'd read the book and saw Emma Watson was in it and figured, what can it hurt? I was plesantly surprised by Logan Lerman's performance in this. I saw him years ago in Hoot (another book-to-film adaptation that was relatively well done) and I liked him in that but I wasn't terribly impressed by his performance in The Lightning Thief. So I decided to give him another chance and was glad I did.

Lerman plays Charlie, a somewhat socially awkward freshman who has started high school in the wake of a tragedy. Months ago his best friend killed himself. Charlie is still struggling to adjust when he meets Patrick and Sam. Charlie is immediately captivated by Sam and after she and Patrick learn about his friend, their group embraces him with open arms.

The story meanders a bit but it's high school so it's allowed. Lerman does a wonderful job of redefining the word awkward. His crush on Sam is adorable and obvious to everyone, except Mary Elizabeth, it seems. Having read the book, I'm nothing but happy about the way this turned out. All the kids are in character and the fight scene was perfection. All in all, a big bravo to everyone involved.
