Summer is the season for blockbusters --- aka the movies that nearly everyone rushes out to see. While we love a good movie, the ones that really draw our attention are the ones based on books. Since we have movies on the brain, we asked our Teen Board members how they feel about seeing their favorite books brought to life on the big screen. Click here to find out whether or not they prefer to read the book first, which adaptations are their favorites and which ones they feel missed the mark.
