Book v. Film: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I absolutely love how the film portrays Jake in the beginning (the Florida introductory part).

And by “absolutely love” I mean totally hate.

Film!Jake is “nice guy still somehow friendless” which is a trope that can honestly fucking die.

And this totally sucks because in doing this film viewers completely miss out on “petulant teen” Book!Jake — who does have a friend, by the way, and is infinitely more entertaining.
