In Beaufort, Carolina, Landon Carter reflects on how he fell in love with his neighbor Jamie Sullivan, 40 years ago.
Jamie, will you go to homecoming with me?
Jamie, daughter of the town's minister,has always been known to be a little different than others, as she is so polite and would never try to hurt anyone. Jamie always carries around a bible that was her mom's who passed away. She is the type of person who gives back to their community and volunteers at an orphanage.
Jamie AND Landon
Landon Carter, who is best friends with Eric Hunter the most popular guy in school(Varsity baseball), decides that he wants to run for school president. With the help from Eric, he ends up winning.
As homecoming is approaching, Landon is desperate for a date and he ends up asking Jamie. He kept telling himself he wasn't nervous but he ended up being a little scared to ask. She ended up saying yes.
When they entered the school, Landon was a bit scared of what people would think of Jamie as his date. Rumors started going around, started by Eric, that he had a crush on her. Although, Jamie and Landon ended up having a good time together at the dance.
Unexpectedly at the dance, Landon's ex-girlfriend, Belinda, ended up throwing up on the bathroom floor from being too drunk. Jamie's first instinct was to instantly help Landon clean up the mess out of her kindness. Afterwards, they took Belinda home and then he took Jamie home.
