Untrue to book, but better than the average lifetime movie.
Though the movie was better than most of the films produced by lifetime, I don't believe it did the original novel by Jodi Picoult justice. The entire ending of the book is left out and discarded arguably that's where the turning point is when Trixie comes to terms with what has happened to her. Also, more emphasis as the father as a comic book author is included in the book, which adds a more dynamic element to the book, is noticeably absent from the movie. However, a great performance by Jamie Johnston (known best from his role as "Peter" in the teen Degrassi) makes up for plot flaws. The movie kept my attention, and had it not been associated with "The Tenth Circle," I believe it would of been perceived better as a movie. Audiences put high expectations on movies based on books, and this one didn't live up to the standards most Picoult readers expected.
