Morning Glory by Diana Peterfreund
I didn't realize until I started reading Morning Glory that it's a movie novelization, rather than a book that was turned into a movie. I don't usually read those, but I've been reading (and enjoying) a lot of Diana Peterfreund's books lately, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I ended up really liking the book. I like Diana Peterfreund's writing style and sense of humor, and even though the style of this book was different than that of the Secret Society Girl series, it was still enough like her other stuff to keep me happy. I especially liked some of the humor that didn't come directly from the dialogue (which I assume was probably taken directly from the movie), such as narrator commentary from the story's heroine, or the way things were described.
At first, while I was reading the book, my husband Michael suggested that we ought to see the movie now. At the time it sounded like a good idea, but when I started looking at the pictures of the cast online, I realized that no one looks quite the way I envisioned them. Funny how the book was based on the movie, and I'm still worried about the movie not being up to snuff! If it weren't for Harrison Ford being in it, I don't know if I'd want to see it at all.
