Awkward coming of age teen romance (set in 1960s suburbia) about a junior high first romance. Tomboyish Juli (Carroll) lives across the street from all-American Bryce (McAuliffe). Her family is close and blue-collar; his is judgmental and middle-class. Juli has a longstanding crush that Bryce doesn't really understand and isn't quite ready to reciprocate and she begins to change her mind about his potential merit. Adaptation of Wendelin Van Draanen's 2001 young-adult novel.
