After the wonderfully made American Girl movie, "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl", "An American Girl: Chrissa Stands Strong" was a Huge dissapointment for me.
I was so looking forward to watching it, because since the Kit movie was so enjoyable and fun, I thought this movie would be just as good. I guess I thought the bullying wouldn't be so mean. I went to public school for 6 years and never saw such mean bullying as in the movie. I don't believe Chrissa was such a good role model, because she tried to handle the bullying alone...and stood strong alone. If anyone here knows anyone being bullied in such a way I would never tell them to stay in school or not tell a parent. It was nice to see that American Girl tried to end the movie in a postive way.
It just didn't feel like a Movie night kind of movie, and I doubt I will watch it again.
American Girl just didn't live up to it's high standards.
