Another teen book being made into a movie

I get a thrill when YA and children’s books are made into movies. There are so many wonderful YA and children’s books that will, hopefully, reach a wider audience, what with all the effort that’s put into promoting movies.

The thrill becomes excitement for me when the movie turns out to be good, or close enough to the book, as I’m hoping Nim’s Island and Inkheart will be–and now, Mary Pearson’s YA novel The Adoration of Jenna Fox, which has just signed a deal to be made into a movie. The book will be released in April.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox
based on the YA novel by Mary Pearson
Director: Brad Silberling
release date: not yet stated

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
