Read it First!

YA titles made into movies

A lot of young adult books become movies, and that only means you need to read it first! These books have all been adapted for film. While watching a movie is a good time, you can get a lot out of a story both on the page and the screen. Check out these books, and our OverDrive collection for other great books that have been movies.
