My daughter and I listened to the audio book. True, the film was a let down in comparison, but my then-seven year old still liked the film. I wish that they'd left the kids ages as in the book, i.e., early teens. I guess they didn't want the kids growing and changing too much. I hope for better in the second go-round. I'm curious what role Yvette will play.


Um.. T Jackson was a boring sidekick on the first one. He is like 31 playing a sidekick to a 19 year old ? argh! I am not going to put up with this again.


I hope this is better than the first one. This series is excellent and the movie version not only made the characters much older than the book (to sell to older kids, I assume) it took out nearly everything that made it great and made Brandon T. Jackson's character a standard black male woman chaser when he was nothing like that in the book. My children haven't read this series, so I don't have a child's opinion on the film, but I was certainly dissapointed.
