Top Book Choices for Teens

Read ‘em before you watch ‘em!

You can enjoy a novel before you watch it play on the screen. Sometimes there can be huge differences between a book and a movie that is based off of a book. Movies only tell you so much about the book and often only touch upon the surfaces of the text, so they sometimes end up excluding some important details. Why miss out on the details though?! It’s because movies average around two hours so it’s  hard to include everything.
