Great movie, excellent book! What I don´t understand is why didn´t they put the grandma - grandpa story in the movie? Kind of the best part of the whole book.

Kimberly In order for it to be done well, it would have taken up too much time. It would also have been unrelated to the main plot of the movie. It works in a book, but movies have to keep the plot rolling smoothly.
