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.

The scene where Celia took a pie to the house didn't happen like that in the book.

Celia didn't bury the miscarried baby. The doctor took it when they left.

Celia and Johnny Foote didn't show up at the restaurant while Skeeter and Stuart were on their date.

im 13, im reading the book and im pretty sure it said that skeeter was a tall skinny girl and was always made fun of, Constantine was in fact the one who made her feel small from the size difference; height not the weight.
