I was recently re-watching Melody 1963- Love Has To Win on Amazon Prime with my sister. We were both wondering why it is so different from the Melody books. All of the other AG movies seem to follow the books better. We both liked both the books and the movie, but thought that the movie was better. I thought that the movie was a lot more realistic. I was wondering if any of you have seen/ read both and which one you prefer (if you haven't read or seen these, I would recommend them both).
