The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky was published over 10 years ago but teens are still reading it. Some would even call this book a "young adult classic"; there are few books with that claim. Now we can see The Perks of Being a Wallflower on the big screen in 2012. It will be interesting to see what Chbosky will do with the film since he is the writer and director. For more information about the movie check out these two websites:
Rumor has it that Uglies the movie will go into production later this year! If you haven't read this trilogy yet, now is a great time to start. The first book in the series is Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.
Flipped the movie is coming out August 6th! This movie is based on Wendelin Van Draanen's book. It should be a sweet romantic comedy!
This summer promises to be a great movie watching summer! There are three movies coming out this summer that are based on YA books. Read the book before you see the movie!
