Netflix has acquired the film rights to the novel “Along for the Ride” by The New York Times bestselling author Sarah Dessen. Netflix recently released the Official Trailer of “Along for the Ride”, which will be released on April 22 this year.
The film tells the story of Auden, who hasn’t slept at night in a long time, not since her parents divorced, or rather, when they started fighting.
Now she has the opportunity to visit her father’s new family in a seaside town and spend a carefree summer with them.
Working in a clothing store brings Auden into the world of girls: chatting together, cultivating friendships, and sharing crushes.
She has been lacking this part of her life because she tries so hard to satisfy a picky mother and be the perfect daughter.
She then meets Eli, an attractive loner who suffers from insomnia just like her and becomes her guide to the nighttime world of the town.
Sarah Dessen uses her precise brushwork to describe how two lonely hearts learn to connect with each other.
