This is my favorite book of all time, but honestly- the cast is a bit of a let down. the only people i thought that looked spot on was ian, kyle, jeb, and maggie. (except arent the brothers supposed to have dark hair? y r they blondes?). Jared is suppose to be older and so is jamie.... i'm a little more than a little let down with melanie. i expected someone alot prettier and more interesting looking. also shouldnt she have a darker tan? smh... this movie better be worth it.
