This book is on my list of TBR. I haven't purchased it yet but I've heard good things.

Good idea for a movie?

I love the book but think that they might make a really terrible movie out of it though 0_o

I'm worried about movie adaptations, especially when they're of YA books. You see how... odd the Twilight movie was... sigh. I just hope they don't ruin an amazing thing.

I'm scared too Steph. Because the site that I got that info from covers horror films. I haven't read this book yet but I wasn't expecting it to be horror related....I guess I can understand somewhat but I really need to read the book.

Haha, well, I learned some things such as Suzanne is writing the screenplay and it's being produced by the woman who produced Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The book is pretty intense but I don't think they're going to turn it into horror. :)

I love the book. And I would like a well done movie but I think that I would be upset if it was poorly done.

you MUST read it! I was sort-of cautious at first because of all the praise, but it lives up to it...

This is on my TBR list too, but I haven't purchased a copy either. Yet. Heard tons of great stuff about it circulating the blogosphere!
