A large majority of the criticism towards the film is from reviewers claiming that the film is a dumbed down version of Dessens novel, while others claimed the film was cheesy but had compelling and emotional moments with great performances by the actors.

During one of my favorite moments in the book, Auden’s father heads back to his study to work on his writing and he says to Auden, “You’ll be okay on your own? Although Hollis doesn't appear in the movie, there's a "The Best of Times" picture frame sitting in Auden's dorm room in the last scene that seems to be a nod to the similarly described one he gives Auden in the book.But as Auden gets to know the people in the small town around her, especially Eli who is alike Auden in so many ways but still a mystery to her, she grows into a person who is so unlike her mother and unlike her father that she can’t be described as anyone but herself. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Auden also ends up spending her nights making up for her lost childhood with Eli, a loner and insomniac with an intriguing past. Auden West has the opportunity to spend the summer at the beach, an opportunity probably most teens would jump at. And she certainly doesn’t feel comfortable at her dad’s house, with a stepmother who is so different (think “pink”) and with a father who is even more self-centered than she remembered.

Although Victoria's disapproval of Clementine's and its employees is still evident in the movie, she's harsher in the book. Auden goes to Perkins Day for a little bit which is where Rogerson, Caitlin's boyfriend, goes to school in Dreamland, the school Will Cash goes to in Just Listen, and where Ruby and Nate go to in Lock and Key And Sydney's school at the beginning of Saint Anything. When she goes to visit her father's new family in the beach town of Colby for the summer, Auden finds herself in a whole new world. Auden’s father is usually deep in writing, rather than assisting Heidi, but he explains that his wife knows he must complete the novel he’s been working on for 10 years. Along the way, she realizes she lost most of her childhood because her parents treated her as an adult since she was young and she never bothered to participate in any of the important milestones of becoming a teenager.

As far as my other life, my non-writing life, I live in the country with my husband, some lizards, and two dogs who are completely spoiled and rule me completely. The next morning, Auden says goodbye to her mother, Victoria, an acclaimed literature professor, and drives to her father’s oceanside home a few hours away. An absentee dad for years, locking himself away in his office to work on his studies, he has an infant and is remarried to Heidi. When something’s difficult to come by, you’ll do that much more to make sure it’s even harder―or impossible―to lose. Auden rushes to the park in time to watch, and afterwards, takes him aside so they can clear the air.
