Absolutely charming. This is exactly the type of film we look for. It is adorable and awkward. I believe lots of teens can relate to how it feels to flirt for the first time and I'm sure many adults will recall as well. It is an adorably awkward romance story that is easy to relate to.

In this film, we meet a teenager named Brandon who has a crush on a girl in the library. He is very nervous about trying to talk to her. He tries several times to carry on light conversation with her, but she seemingly ignores him. He tries to impress her by reading books next to her, at one point even reads a book called "How To Talk To Girls. "This is all very cute and you start to feel badly that his efforts are not met with so much as a simple acknowledgement. He tries a grand gesture that gets him kicked out of the library and he ends up sneaking back in. We finally find out why the girl is ignoring him. It is well produced with excellent video, sets and costumes. My single issue with it is that the audio is a bit uneven. I would like to see a version with improved audio.

That said, I definitely recommend this for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival and give it 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend it for ages 12 to 18. Reviewed by Rachael V., KIDS FIRST! Juror

In this romantic comedy an awkward teenage boy takes great and often embarrassing measures to catch the attention of a girl in a library, but must avoid being thrown out by the strict librarian.
