We’ve talked about summer movies in a past blog, but this one almost passed us by! Judy Blume’s Tiger Eyes has been made into a movie and it’s coming out June 7th. It stars Willa Holland as Davey, Amy Jo Johnson (former Felicity star) as Davey’s mom, Cynthia Stevenson as Bitsy and Tatanka Means (The Host) as Wolf.
If you don’t remember the book, here’s a quick review: Davey is a girl whose life is turning upside down. Her dad was killed in a robbery, her mom has decided to move to New Mexico to start over, and Davey has no anchors in her life anymore. Hiking in the neighboring canyons, she meets a mysterious boy named Wolf. He leads her on a path of self-discovery, forgiveness and healing, but the journey is so hard. Will she make it?
The author’s son is the director, we hope that helps keep the movie close to the book. Here’s a link to the trailer.
Can’t wait? Want to read it now? Here you go: Tiger Eyes.
And Tiger Eyes is also available as an audiobook on CD, a downloadable e-book, and a

We LOVE going to the movies. Really. This last weekend we watched “Jurassic Park in 3D” at the IMAX. It was awesome sauce. But looking ahead, we are realizing that this movie season is just unreal. So many movies to see, almost one a week for the entire summer.

Remember in The Lord of the Rings, where Frodo had to take the One Ring of Power and pitch it into a volcano in Mordor? How did that Ring start in the Shire anyway? That story is called The Hobbit and comes out this Friday, December 14th.
This year’s movie is actually the first of three. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey takes Bilbo Baggins (the Hobbit) from his home in the Shire all the way to the Misty Mountains where he meets an interesting fellow named Gollum. Gollum, you may remember, was the weird looking character in the Lord of the Rings movies who went around talking about “my precious” all of the time. The next movies will deal with Smaug the dragon and the War of the Five Armies.
The book, The Hobbit, is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Originally published in 1937, this book has never gone out of print. We’ve ordered extra copies at the library just for the movie. Click on the cover to the right and request a copy to pick up at your favorite branch–or go to your favorite branch and ask if a paperback is available.
*And for those Trekkies out there, go see The Hobbit at an IMAX location. You’ll be treated to the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness. Hobbits and Vulcans in the same night. Niiiiiiice.
It is almost here!!! The premier of the Hunger Games movie!!! Will it live up to the hype?? Sometimes when a book you love becomes a movie it is a letdown. This one looks like it will be good though. It seems like these books were meant to be movies, with the stark contrasts of the different characters, the pageantry of the games, and the electrifying plot.
