YA Books to Movie Trend Continues...
Attention all Young Adult Readers, (And please, let's not kid ourselves that we are all out there!), the latest Trilogy Series has been picked up by Disney and Offspring Entertainment. It is the trilogy by Ally Condie. Only the first book in the series, Matched, is out at this time. The second book, Crossed, is set to be released November 1, 2011 and the third book (name yet to be released) is set for November 2012. Yes, a full year and a half away! See attached link for the full details.
You might be unfamiliar with this trilogy since only the first book, Matched, has been out. I fell in love with the book, the characters, and the story. It is similar to The Hunger Games Series with the consistent YA "formula" (special thanks to CC for identifying that one). It makes you think what life would be like without any choices. For you to be born with all decisions, including who you are to spend your life with (hence the title), has been decided for you based on facts and science. As a single person, the idea of having my mate decided for me has some natural appeal! But, this is more than just that one decision, it is about EVERY decision. Its about do you follow, or do you lead... I plan on following (pun intended!) this trilogy to the end and to the theater.
