This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Jamie was meek with few friends. She was sad when she was picked on. She had uncool friends. She wouldn't take being teased. She didn't care what people thought and liked herself.
   Landon was initially unfocused, but not a bad kid. He was aimless, self centered and a rebel until Jamie showed him the way.
   Landon became school student body President after his father forced him to run. He doesn't run.
   The story begins with Landon Carter at age 57 remembering what happened when he was 17. It begins with a mean prank Landon pulled when he was 17. We eventually hear from Landon when he is 21 years old.
   There is tension between Landon and his father because Landon is not outgoing enough. Landon hates his father because he abandoned his family and has a new one.
