Neal Shusterman Is Coming to BookPeople!!!
Neal Shusterman has a new YA book coming out this month called Challenger Deep. It has been getting a lot of buzz because it’s not in the same style as Shusterman’s other books we all know and love, but a little something different and equally amazing. Challenger Deep is a deeply powerful and personal novel. A captivating story about mental illness that lingers long beyond the last page, the novel features haunting interior illustrations by Shusterman’s son Brendan. Neal Shusterman will be in the store April 30th, at 7pm discussing this book, which officially comes out on April 21. Check out this amazing trailer!!!
The Mortal Instruments T.V. Show??!!
So as some of you guys know, ABC Family has picked up production of Shadowhunters, a new television series based on The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. This is good news, yes, but do you guys remember that movie that came out oh, a year ago called The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones? And do you remember that amazing cast of that movie . . . yes? Well, that cast has been erased and they will be casting new faces even though I can’t see Magnus Bane being played by anyone other than Godfrey Gao!!!!! Although, this is bittersweet news, I am glad that this series will be returning via small screen and the story will continue. That’s all that matters right?
