Which Book to Movie Is Best? The Final Four
Have you ever read a YA book and thought to yourself, “This would make a great movie”? Maybe it’s already been turned into a major motion picture. This month we are highlighting some of the biggest YA books that have been made into movies. Let your voice be heard by voting each week for your favorite in each paring.
To vote, simply come to the library and pick up a voting slip in the Teen Spot. Choose the winner of each match. Turn your vote into the can. You can also place your vote online. The winners from each week will go head to head in a winner take all battle. Be sure to check back each week and vote, to help your favorite book/series take home the gold.
