This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Tim has an autistic brother. Tim has an autistic son
   John mentions repeatedly that he thinks Tim loves Savannah. Not mentioned.
   Tim is charismatic and cool. Tim seems sort of meek and wimpy.
   They do not meet again. John watches Tim and Savannah's life together from a hill. They both look at the moon at the same time. Savannah is on her bike and parks on the street, seeing John in a coffee shop - they see each other and hug.
   Tim does not die from his cancer. Tim dies from his cancer.

Why does the guy who wrote the screenplay/manuscript call Savanna a "Conservative"? That wasn't part of it. Was it because she was such a good person?
