Read the Book, See the TV Show

ABC Family recently announced that they are working on two TV series based on teen books. I think they are still in the very beginning stages, so we'll need to wait and see what happens. In the meantime, you may want to try the books.

Recovery Road by Blake Nelson: While she is in a rehab facility for drug and alcohol abuse, Maddie meets Stewart, and they begin a relationship. They try to maintain this relationship (and stay sober) after they both get out.

Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay: For seven hundred years, the souls of Romeo and Juliet have repeatedly inhabited the bodies of newly deceased people to battle to the death as sworn enemies, until they meet for the last time as two Southern California high school students. (By the way, I love the cover blurb for this one, which says "The greatest love story ever told is a lie.")

Have you read either of these books? Would you watch the show for either?
