* AdultsAreUseless: Averted, but only at the very end: Tracy's mom essentially rescues her from Evie's influence, but until then played horrifyingly straight. Throughout the whole movie, however, Mel rarely disciplines her.

Thirteen is a 2003 movie written by the then fifteen year old Nikki Reed. The movie is intended to be partially autobiographical as it shows much of what Nikki's life was like between the ages of twelve and thirteen. The movie deals with the experience of girls just barely out of their pre-teens and getting into situations that would be better handled by adults.
