This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Skeeter gets a job writing the Miss Myrna column for the paper. She just applies for the job and gets it. She gets the job by showing a rejection letter she received from Miss Stein in New York. It says she needs more experience.
   After Skeeter is offered the job, she is in shock and after the Editor offers her 8 dollars a week, he mistakes her shock for holding out for more money. He then offers 10 dollars a week. He only offers 8 dollars and she takes it gladly.
   Skeeter confronts her Mother about Constantine's leaving when they are alone together. She asks her Dad the next day, and he claims to know nothing. Skeeter asks while at a family dinner. Everyone says that Constantine left.
   Skeeter is big and tall. Emma Stone, who plays Skeeter in the movie is 5'4" and slim.
   Skeeter confesses to Aibileen that she has sent her resume, and has made phone calls to Miss Stein at Harper and Row. Aibileen then tells Skeeter that her son had wanted to be a writer and had an idea for a book about what it was like for a black man to work for a white man. He had the idea after reading a story called The Invisible Man. Skeeter comes up with the idea for a book about what it is like for the Black maids to work for white families.

If you know a difference, don't comment, Add it above!
"Skeeter visits Aibileen to tell her they are printing 5000 more books and they will all be getting more money."/ "No mention of more prints." No, but Skeeter's letter promises more money to come, and the book does appear to be a hit since we see several people independently choosing to read it even before they start to realize that it's about their own town.
