Some of these action packed feature films are actually based on young adult books.  They are getting lots of attention too.  It has always been fun to read the book and then sit on the edge of your seat waiting to see if the film will be the same.  The Teen Scene is highlighting a few books that have been adapted into film or tv versions.
