Finally, finally, one of Judy Blume’s books has been made into a movie … and we might just be a wee excited about that. Tiger Eyes, one of her more grown-up YA books, is about a 15-year-old girl named Davey whose mom uproots the family to move in with relatives in New Mexico after their dad is shot during a hold-up. Davey has to come to terms with her grief, accept her mother’s new boyfriend into her life, and see if she can grow close to Wolf, a friend in her new town who’s the only person who seems to understand her. “Tiger Eyes” the movie will star Willa Holland from “Gossip Girl” and Amy Jo Johnson from “Felicity”; the script was written by Judy Blume and her son, Lawrence Blume. It’s coming out later this year.
Seriously, how is it possible this is the first time any of Judy Blume’s books has been made into a film but there have been 17 “American Pie” movies? [Entertainment Weekly]
