Fresh: Like Dandelion Dust is a well-acted, earnest film about adoptive parents' worst nightmare, dealing sympathetically with all parties in a lose-lose situation. – Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times, Oct 7, 2010

I read this book when I was 12 and I cried almost throughout all of it. Karen kingsbury is an artist. A must see for drama fans.


Fresh and enjoyable, a nice departure from the stamp mill of Hollywood. Great script, acting and photography. Entertaining, suspenseful, and emotional - and that's from a guy.


Really a phenomenal movie! I have never written a review on a movie before but this was worth commenting about. Wonderful acting and a moving story!
