With a sweet teen-soap tone that lightens up the heaviness of a main character in cancer treatment, this dramedy goes down easier than you'd expect. Supportive (and believable!) female friendships are rare on TV; more often than not, female characters are in competition or just co-existing on the same screen. So when Alexa and Katie show their friendship in tangible ways, like when Katie shaves her head in solidarity with Alexa's chemo hair loss, or when Alexa tags a sign "Alexa + K8tie 4ever," viewers with their own real-life sisterly friendships will feel a tingle of recognition -- and the thrill of seeing part of themselves represented.
Families can talk about Alexa's fear that her peers will react differently to her when they find out she has cancer. How can we be true to ourselves and also feel like we're fitting in and part of a peer group? What would you do in Alexa's shoes? Would you feel the same urgency to keep your illness secret? 781b155fdc
