This movie hurt my soul. It really did. It tells the story of Agnes 'Apple' Bailey a 16-year old girl who is abused by her hood-rat mother and whose father left before she was even born. When Apple is tired of the abuse and suspects that she is expecting, she cuts of her hair, steals money from her mother and runs away to try find her father. After finding her father, she is revealed to be pregnant and shows no manners. Her father's wife eventually trieds to get Apple to have an abortion, but Apple runs away, realising that she loved her unborn baby.
Later on, she steals a car from a stranger and is involved in a car crash but survives but is subjected to the preaching from an old, wise pastor who soon enough, send her to a shelter for young pregnant women wanting to raise their babies. There, Apple finds happiness and is able to piece herself back together while becoming more civilised and making many friends even though her mother attempts to take her back and attacks her.
In the end, Apple has her baby and establishes a good yet slightly alien relationship with her father and his family, but cannot live with them due to her love and friendship with the mothers in the shelter.
This movie had me BAWLING MY EYES OUT ALL THROUGHOUT!!!!!! This is not a movie you should watch if you 1) are naive and/or oblivious 2) do not want to cry for an hour or so 3) want to keep a pristine image of Vanessa Hudgens and 4) do not have tissues nearby. (Though, I think that if you like those I'm-crying-but-I-like-it-because-I-like-these-kind-of-movies, then yes. Watch this.
