And it has both Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. This could be awesome!

Wow. I hope they don't mangle it. Sounds like a good cast though.

I remember being very creeped out by the book, but I can see that being a fabulous movie if done right. *crosses fingers* Here's hoping its awesome!

I was excited too, until I heard that they are also casting....Taylor Swift. Who is a distinctly terrible actress. Sigh.

I love that book!  I've been trying to get my kiddos to read it.  And have failed so far.  :-(

Lois Lowry.  She wrote several really good books.  Well worth reading.
