Character error 

Sam is seen with a map of Indiana in her car. Considering she is going to her childhood home and the very house her friend lived in as a kid, why does she need a map? No one needs a map to find their old home town.

Errors in geography 

On the railroad bridge, at the beginning of the scene where they go to see the "Mystic Advisor", it says ACL RR for Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. This railroad only ran in the south east United States. The movie is supposed to be in Shelby, Indiana. They would have had to ride their bikes to, at least, Winston-Salem, North Carolina to see a bridge like this.

In the movie they say that their home town is Shelby, Indiana. Shelby, Indiana is in the north western part of Indiana. They went to Greenfield, Indiana to go to the library, on their bikes. That is impossible: they are approx 150 miles apart.

Plot holes 

When the girls are looking for articles from 1945 in the newspaper Roberta finds an article about her mother's death. Her mother would have had to have died after 1958, therefore Roberta shouldn't have seen the article unless she wasn't actually searching in 1945 like her friends were.
