Teen Books Take Over the Movies

Take a look at IMDB's list of upcoming books to movies. Almost all of them are teen books! Uglies, If I Stay, Maximum Ride… Now, some are still in development (so it's not a done deal), but lots have made it to pre-production (so, there's a good chance), like The Forest of Hands and Teeth and Mortal Instruments. Just goes to show that teen books rule.
