Emma Galvin's performance is pitch-perfect as she recounts the unconventional story of 16-year-old Campbell Cooper, who is being raised at Disney World by her hula-dancing mother. At age 9, Cam was diagnosed with cancer, and she’s been in and out of hospitals for seven years. Now, with her daughter out of treatment options, Cam's mother hears about a magical town—Promise, Maine—that has healing powers, and she decides to take Cam and her little sister there for the summer. Along the way, they stop to visit Cam's best friend and her beloved grandmother, finally arriving in a town where Main Street never looks the same twice. They’re invited to stay in the family home of the beautiful Asher, who has issues of his own. Whether it's Cam's teenage sarcasm or her grandmother's thick New Jersey accent, Galvin is spot-on every time. K.O.
