The good people at YATopia are running this fantastic blogfestthroughout November. So, every Wednesday (or Thursday if you're on my side of the world) I will be posting something on that topic.
This week's challenge? Music and Movie Fun—Take a dark YA book and build a soundtrack for it or cast characters for a movie version.
This one really has me scratching my head. I want to do the movie casting, but I'm having a dilly of a time coming up with actors young enough to play the characters in any YA. The movies I watch tend to be rather obscure and invariably foreign, so the actors I know are not ones my blog readers will necessarily recognize.
But I'll give it a shot. The book I'm casting is Hannah Moskowitz's Break.
Anna Sophia Robb as Charlotte
Callan McAuliff as Jesse
Ezra Miller as Jonah
Nicola Peltz as Naomi
So that's your core cast. There's a baby in there, but babies can be played by anyone. Plus parents, but really, are the parents the main focus of the book?
Do these actors look like the characters as you pictured them?
