YouTube Review:

Review: 

I felt that it portrayed the main character, Binah, as perfect, and the "English Roses", four other girls, were only jealous of her because she was so perfect. When they found out her mother was dead, they realized only then that their jealousy was unfounded. So the main character's only flaw is that she has a dead mother, and shunning people is bad because... they might have dead mothers. Or something. My video goes into more detail.

Message: 

Don't hate people who seem too perfect because they might have tragic backstories.
