Young Adult Book-to-Film Adaptions

Which is better, the movie or the book?  The age-old question.  Aren’t librarians required to say the book? It might even be a graduation requirement!   Now, what about readers?   It’s no secret that films don’t always follow a novel’s storyline perfectly. However, it doesn’t mean readers don’t still love seeing their favorite stories brought to screen.   Just typically means there is excitement with a small dash of nervous dread thrown in.  Want to know what we’re talking about?  Start by checking out some titles shown below that became adaptations in 2018.
