Have you seen it? Did you read the book? What did you think?

I took my daughers & niece to see it this afternoon. We loved it. I’ve not read the book in ages, DD13 loves the book and now DD10 wants to read it.

The book is written at about a 5th grade reading level. It deals with a couple of topics that parents might not want kids under that age to see yet.

I listened to an interview from NPR with the author, Katherine Paterson, and her son David (who wrote the screen play for the movie). It was a great interview. Here’s the link if you’re interested in giving it a listen.
