I read about another teen book that is being made into a film today, Flipped, by Wendelin Van Draanen. It’s about a boy and a girl, chapters alternating between the two. The girl is quite smitten (yes, smitten) with the boy for years, but he has no need for her. When they reach junior high, things change (you might say, flip) on them. This book is super popular, and if you haven’t read it yet, you should do so now. One change the filmmakers made for the movie is the era. The movie takes place in the 50’s instead of present day. Watch the trailer and see what you think about this change.  (Regardless of the change, it looks pretty cute.)
