"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green



Okay, this is what happens when you troll author's blogs: you find out AMAZING news!

Geography Club by Brent Hartinger is being turned into a movie!!!!! 

Acoording to Brent's blog and Variety, the movie just wrapped, and is looking at a 2013 release date!  I am so excited about this!  Geography Club is one of my favorite GLBT YA books, and the fact that they're making a movie based on it is so exciting!  This really shows that American culture is changing, allowing more real stories to be told from ALL walks of life. 

I'm sure I'm going to LOVE it!  Brent really liked what he saw when he visited the set, which makes me so very happy!  I mean, Nikki Blonsky (of Hairpray fame) is starring in it, along with Justin Deelet (on 90210) and Meghan Martin (10 Things I Hate About You), as well as some slightly less known actors.  But I think that's good.  No one will be expecting a certain "type" from most of the actors, allowing them to really embrace the characters.

I can't wait until there is a trailer out!  I'm so excited!  I love that more and more of my favorite YA books are being made into new genres; just another way to enjoy them!
