I really love that movie and book.

Definitely one of my favorite Kristen's roles.
Melinda was perfectly portrayed by Kris. Her expressions were brilliant. She really shown that sadness, unspoken pain and feelings of a wounded young girl who is striving for help.
It was such a touching and emotional but also a beautiful movie. It really moved me to tears.



Awww, poor girl.
