Genuinely original indie probes the transformation of Tracy (Wood) a well-behaved, slightly nerdy, L.A. teen who, practically overnight, becomes a ragingly rebellious, boy-crazy shoplifter, thanks to psychologically scarred but savvy schoolmate Evie (co-writer Reed), who invites Tracy into her world of popularity, piercings, and partying. As Tracy's mom Melanie, a recovering alcoholic, frets over Tracy's disturbing personality makeover, Evie begins to bond with her. Performances are uniformly sparkling. Spot-on characters and all-too-real details come from director/co-writer Hardwicke's collaboration with the then 13-year-old Reed--whom she met while dating Reed's father--the real-life good girl of the story.
