2012

C-
Lowest Recommended Age:Middle School
MPAA Rating:Rated PG-13 for intense disaster sequences and some language
Movie Release Date:November 13, 2009
DVD Release Date:March 2, 2010

It is that last magical moment at the cusp of childhood and adolescence, which is what makes it so fascinating and delightful. Genevieve Bailey remembered the year she was 11 as one of the happiest of her l
