** Also implied in regards to [[spoiler:Ingrid's]] mother in the novel: there's a throwaway line toward the end about [[spoiler:Ingrid's]] mother drowning in the cow pond when [[spoiler:Ingrid]] was thirteen. It's not elaborated on or mentioned in detail, but it's very chilling when you think about it.

* NorseMythology: Astrid and Ingrid mention this a bit in the novel. Since they're Scandinavian, it makes sense.

Added DiffLines:

** It's a throwaway line in the novel, but [[spoiler:while Astrid is recovering from the shooting in the hospital, a plainclothes police officer says that they got Starr when they caught her sneaking in trying to visit (said she was visiting her sister) and berate Astrid for making up a story about burglars in order to protect Starr when she's not even her real mother. No mention of a trial or sentencing, but she was arrested. Astrid only lied for Davey's (Starr's biological son) sake.]]

* SatelliteLoveInterest: In the novel, Paul Trout is into comics and Astrid, and that's about it, even after [[spoiler:she leaves California and lives with him]]. He's given a little more to do in the film, but not much.
