Very rarely, if ever is the movie as good as the book. I generally walk away disappointed.

Recently, children’s and teen author Kate Messner said, “When we tell boys that they shouldn't like to read about girls, they often listen, and that's a problem for a number of reasons. We're placing artificial limits on what kids should read and keeping them from books they might love. And we're also sending a message to boys that girls' stories don't matter. That translates to girls' and women's voices not mattering, too.” It's time to go beyond "boy books" with incredible YA featuring adventuresome kid protagonists for all young adults to love! http://on.nypl.org/1NUc8Ke
