Read It and Weep (television) A Disney Channel Original Movie, premiering on July 21, 2006. Teenager Jamie accidentally turns her personal, private journal in as her homework. The teacher loves what she’s written—a story chronicling the adventures of a confident and cool teenager named Isabella (“Is”)—and it ends up getting published as a novel. When the book turns into an overnight success, Jamie cannot help but get caught up in her newfound celebrity status.
