If you've ever read Wendelin Van Draanen's celebrated young adult novel Flipped, you know what a sweet and funny book it is - a totally different thing than what you (if you're a mother) are possibly envisioning when I say "young adult novel," what with the barfy visions of Twilight dancing through your head.
I was excited to find out that Flipped -- a romantic comedy about first love and true love and what might be love but probably isn't -- has now been turned into a movie. And if you're looking for something that would be a pretty much universally appreciated gift for Christmas, this would be the movie, a great film for the family to watch together or for mothers and daughters to watch while curled up on the sofa with a big bowl of popcorn while the winter weather does whatever it plans to do outside.
Flipped is available on DVD and Blu-Ray at Amazon.com and Wal-Mart and other usual retailers. HIGHLY recommended!
