Esther Blueburger's quest begins when she escapes from her Bat Mitzvah party and is befriended by Sunni.., the effortlessly cool girl who is everything Esther thinks she wants to be. With the help of Sunni, Esther goes away from her ordinary life and leaves behind her malfunctioning Jewish family to hang out with Sunni's far breezier and super-hip single mom Mary and attend Sunni's forbidden public school as a Swedish exchange student.

  1. Always the drama is tempered with an equal measure of off-center humor that keeps things crackling.
  2. Appearances by Toni Collette and Whale Rider’s Keisha Castle-Hughes should draw a few curious parents to what is, most of the time, a quirky and quite enjoyable coming of age saga.

    Despite uninspired dialogue and direction, newcomer Catanzariti impresses as the oddball finding her niche. But the show, such as it is, belongs to top-billed Castle-Hughes.
