INFO: Conrad, Pam. Staying Nine. O. 1988.
DESC: Heather adores being nine – and, suddenly, on the eve of her 10th birthday, she’s got a mortal terror of turning any older. With the help of her mother, and her uncle’s girlfriend, Heather is set on finding a way to remain nine. A cute look at the rather bittersweet themes of growing up and aging, Staying Nine is most notable in its portrait of mother-daughter life in a single-parent household.
