And today in teen movie news

Selena Gomez is going to be in the Thirteen Reasons Why movie.  I am only vaguely aware of who she is, although that link makes it pretty plain that she is Disney Affiliated ™.

I never got around to reading that book, but the kids love it.  It's about a teen who commits suicide and then leaves behind a bunch of cassette tapes explaining, well, you know. 

Does any teenager still have access to cassette tapes?  That's where my willing suspension of disbelief fails me.


  1. I also saw that Red Riding Hood, I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil..., and Lemonade Mouth are being made into movies. None of them look especially good.

  2. I guess I should actually comment on the post, too. I liked the book a lot. The cassette tape thing might not make sense these days, but how else would a girl leave behind physical evidence of her voice? Maybe her parents had a bunch in the basement? It wasn't explained, to my recollection.
