I fucking hate it too because I think it's such a real thing, not just in literature, I see it all the time. I'm a longtime fan of Sarah Dessen, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Netflix was adapting her 2009 bestseller "Along For the Ride" into a movie starring Emma Pasarow and Belmont Cameli. I identified with Auden’s alienation and her awakening to the people around her, but with the number of other things going on, I’m sure other parts will speak louder to other people. Auden has just finished her senior year and looks forward to spending the summer like she usually does: staying home and studying, while occasionally attending the parties hosted by her mom for her grad students. Auden overhears Maggie, Leah, and Esther talking about it when she enters Clementine's, and they're able to identify her.Even though I’ve read almost every novel Dessen has written, it still surprises me how engrossed I can become in the atmosphere and settings that she creates. The employees at Heidi's boutique encourage Auden to go to a party with them and there she has an encounter with Eli. Her mother apologizes for expecting Auden to be like her and for any negative effects of the divorce. My only complaint--and this is just a personal thing--is that "Jesus" was used as kind of a curse word several times when "Jeez" (or something else just as innocuous) could have been easily substituted.

One thing—Eli’s help in placating Thisbe in the middle of the night while Heidi catches up on some sleep—leads to another—seeing Eli at a party—and they become night buddies, embarked in a quest to give Auden a second chance at the childhood she never had, one food fight at a time. Discover unique things to do, places to eat, and sights to see in the best destinations around the world with Bring Me! Though in reality, she and Eli were just talking, and Belissa was oblivious to the actual conversation, accusing Auden falsely. Directed by Sofia Alvarez ( To All The Boys I've Loved Before), the film captures all the incredible summer magic and romance in the small beach town of Colby.While waiting for Heidi at the diner, Auden is prompted by her father to take care of Thisbe outside. When I first picked it up, I only meant to just read the first little bit but then what seemed like ten minutes passed and I was on page seventy. Eli (played by Belmont Cameli) is a bit of an enigma in the book, but the movie brought a much-needed charming, adventurous, and flirtatious side to Eli.

Early in the morning, she helps out her young stepmother Heidi by supervising her newborn half-sister, Thisbe, while Heidi rests. She skips a kickball game organized by Eli that night, not telling anyone why, and then runs into her high school classmate Jason — her would-be prom date who stood her up for a school commitment. A daughter of academics and an exemplary student, her mother objects to her wanting to spend time with her father. She's snooty and judgmental when she visits Auden at the boutique but quickly comes to the rescue when Heidi crumbles under the pressure of new motherhood, encouraging her to stand up to Robert and giving tips on taking care of Thisbe. There's something that readers can relate to in every character: whether it be the driven determination of Auden's mom, or the insecurity Auden has with failing, etc.Her mother, happily divorced, throws parties with her college students every week, a subtle way for her to brag about her intellectualism.
