She’s perfect! I’m not sure about Jack for Ethan, though? I need to see some more pictures of him.
I always have a hard time picturing him-the same as I do with Peeta! It’s crazy but those 2 are a couple of the few that I just can’t get a clear picture of when I’m reading and it drives me nuts!
I’m going to look for some more pictures of him :o]

Exciting! Thanks for posting, I hadn’t heard that they were going to do a movie adaptation. I love it when they do books to movies… although I’m almost always disappointed.

I guess it was going to happen sooner or later. I wonder if a movie could ever get across the humour in this? The little town where anyone over sixty still talks about the War of Northern Aggression?
