    However, there may be a few adjustments to make the movie better. The teenager is American who converts to Islam and is being chased by radical Christians, Tea Party thugs and masterminded by Carl Rove!!! See, I can write the screen play better, now send me my royalties or I’ll post a nasty attack on Media Mutters and the Puffington Host!!!

    Hahaha! Good one GJP! I feel the same way!

    Congrats Klavan… now I don’t have to buy the books for my daughter who doesn’t friggin read! She gets good grades and all, but reading is just not her thing. Kind of bums me out. I can take her to see it!!! Yippee!!!

    But I still dish out $5 a month for PJTV!!! So I’m still chippin in okay!?

    WOW, congratulations!!! My daughter and I can hardly wait, and she of course is interested in who will be playing Charlie.

    Any clues? Hints?

    this is so exciting. i love the 1st 2 books and cannot wait for the 3rd! it’s always great news to hear when a good book is being made into a movie…just hoping they keep his Christian concerns as a large part of the movie!
