So I just watched the TV premiere of Zapped on Disney Channel – why wouldn’t I? – and I somehow stumbled upon the fact that it’s based on a book called “Boys are Dogs”. Most people would say that’s offensive, but honestly, when you think about it, it’s great to be a dog! Especially when the movie pointed out that girls are cats, and, well, cats are selfish, lazy, and not so fun to have around. Continue reading

Since ‘Maleficent’ came out last month and is still running in theaters, I figured I’d honor the movie with a post about the most unusual – though not necessarily new – fairy tale retellings the YA book world has to offer; after all, ‘Maleficent’ is a retelling of the classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’.

Synopsis: Lively and Humorous Historical Romp from an Acclaimed Author
Two years ago, Zayne Beckett’s departure from New York City to meet up with his almost-fiance caused Agatha Watson no small amount of grief. So he is the last person she wanted to stumble upon in her travels as a reporter with the New York Tribune. Looking worse for the wear, he clearly needs to be taken in hand and taken back East to his family. Even though she’s over him, Agatha can’t help feeling sorry for him and realizes she’ll have to be the one to get the stubborn man back home.
Zayne has no desire to be taken anywhere. Content to sit and mope over his recent bad fortune and the desertion of his not-quite-fiance, he’s prepared to drag his heels all the way back to New York. That is, until he and Agatha find themselves slipping back into the strangely enjoyable bickering and bantering of their old friendship.
It isn’t until they arrive in New York City that Zayne realizes Agatha’s determined nose for news has earned her a few enemies. When his attempts to repay her for helping him go sadly awry, Agatha proves herself just as stubborn as Zayne. Everyone else may think them a match, but nothing could be further from the truth–until Agatha finds herself in real trouble. Have these two stubborn, too-smart-for-their-own-good people been meant for each other all along? Continue reading
