Woot woot for Ally!!! Publisher’s Weekly Children’s Bookshelf–Sept 16

So here is what I read yesterday . . .

Disney and Offspring Entertainment have bought film rights to Ally Condie’s Matched, a futuristic fantasy novel that Dutton is publishing in November, as the first in a trilogy. The world revolves around a society that dictates what individuals can read, watch and believe, and decides who they are partnered with for life during a Matching Ceremony that takes place on their 18th birthday. Variety reports that the property, with a girl torn between two boys, is seen as a potential successor to Twilight.

Congrats, Ally! And yes, I can sing AND act . . .
