This is an easy way to find out what help is out there for teens whose parents drink too much. We follow Cindy's school and home routine which could be the same routine we or our best friends follow. We watch her trying to make a go of an embarrassing home life and we watch her endure the taunts of Janelle and her click -- the in group. "First Step" mixes friendship and fights in a way that brings the characters into our own school.
SUBJECTS:     Alcoholics -- Fiction.
