Audra’s comments:  Really enjoyed this book series…did not like the first movie all that much.  Was very disappointed in the vast differences between movie and book.   I’ll probably go see the movie anyway though.

Audra’s comments:  Just bought this real book (not Kindle version) to read on Spring Break…stay tuned for a review soon!   If it affects me the way “The Fault in Our Stars” did then I’m certain to love both book and movie.

Audra’s Comments:  Haven’t read any of these and don’t think my boys have either.   Jack Black stars in the movie and it is targeted to teens and tweens and since I have two of those then I’m sure to see this!
