YA Book to Film Adaptations

With Divergent opening this weekend, YA (young adult) book to film adaptations are back in the spotlight. For Hollywood, and lovers of YA everywhere, it is important that Divergent does well at the box office. Every studio is looking for the next Hunger Games or Twilight and so far no one has come close. Vampire Academy was a bust. The Mortal Instruments, which I love, didn’t do well enough, though a sequel is still being discussed. And those are just two examples. There are more out there.
Let’s hope Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet can bring in the crowds so more of our beloved YA stories will hit the big screen. As long as the money is rolling in, YA will stand a chance. Get out there and support your fellow YA author and her dream.
I want to hear what you think after you see it. Please add a comment and share what you thought of the film.
