Tall Girl on Netflix

Ahhh high school! It was the best of times and the worst of times.  For me it was a continuation of trying to find myself and fit it. I was this African-American and Mexican-American mixed girl who wasn't Black enough for the Black crowd or Mexican enough for the Mexican crowd. It was so hard trying to fit in.  Where was this Netflix Tall Girl film when I was growing up?  Tall Girl stars: Ava Michelle, Griffin Gluck, Luke Eisner, Anjelika Washington, Sabrina Carpenter, Clara Wilsey, Paris Berelc, Rico Paris, Steve Zahn, and Angela Kinsey. I was excited to be part...
