I am very disappointed with this, mainly, as other people said, Ellie's appearance. I believe Ellie's appearance is very important because she always puts herself down about her body, her hair, her glasses. The Ellie on TV is nothing like that. She's thin, straight hair, no boobs, nothing - NOTHING LIKE ELLIE! Ellie was supposed to be someone we could all relate to, but I really can't relate to her character on TV. Also, I don't regard TV Ellie as a witty, clever, wonderful person as I regard the book Ellie. Instead, I regard her as whiny, overacting and just plain annoying - I don't relate to her, I don't side with her. As other people have said, you expect characters to look slightly like the character in the book, but in this case, they are nothing alike at all. Another thing is that Magda magically changed from white to black. I don't mind the new Magda but it's definitely not as I imagined her to be. I imagined the dad older and Anna completely differently. Maybe I am being picky, but this TV series doesn't really seem true to the books at all, which is really sad because it could have been really good.
As a lover of the Girls in Love series and many of Jaqueline Wilson books, I am tremendously disappointed in this untrue adaptation of a funny, clever novel. I suggest you stick with the books!
