YA Adaptations of Adult Books

Radium Girls by Kate Moore is now out in a YA version! We are so excited about this! We read Radium Girls the adult version which was so interesting -- we wanted to look up everything about these girls and the radium they worked with. Great for mother, daughter read or mother son read -- definitely worth reading.

Other awesome books that have a Young Adult version: Finest Hours, The Boys in the Boat, Unbroken ... all of these important unforgettable books!
