YA Movie Madness: Firelight by Sophie Jordan


For anyone out who has read FIRELIGHT by Sophie Jordan and fell in love with it, I have great movie news! I read today on Film Filia that Nick Pustay has been hired to adapt Sophie Jordan's novel into feature movie. So often we hear of movie rights being optioned, but then nothing ever comes of it. I'm so excited that this ball has started rolling for Firelight!

The article says-
"Pustay previously worked on Ramona and Beezus, the adaptation of the Beverly Cleary novel, as well as Aquamarine, the Alice Hoffman book.

For Unique Features, he is writing the adaptation of Shiver, the story of a teenage boy who becomes a wolf each winter and his girlfriend."

Did you guys know there is a movie coming out for Shiver? Where have I been?! That's so exciting!


Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

I need to read this book before the movie. That is so exciting! I love when YA books are made into movies, but I just hope it isn't disappointing. I can't wait for a Shiver movie as well!
