Read It Before They Screen It: Vibes and The Lucky One

Vibes, the YA novel from Amy Kathleen Ryan, has been picked up for a feature film adaptation.

Variety reports:

Comedy centers on a popular 17-year-old cheerleader whose reality is turned upside down when she wakes up with the power to read minds and learns what everyone really thinks of her.

"Ryan works in both a romance and a divorce, and reverses Kristi's instinctive satirizing of people who care about her — and does it all with an abundance of wit," cheers Publishers Weekly.

The latest novel from bestselling author Nicholas Sparks is set to be adapted by producer Denise DiNovi and Warner Bros.

The Lucky One tells the story of Logan Thibault, a Marine who survives three tours in Iraq. He attributes his good fortune to a photograph he carried of a woman he has never met, and he sets out to meet his good-luck charm when he returns to North Carolina.

"Readers are sure to relish this grand, destined love story enhanced with endearing kids, dogs and grandmothers; a cozy country atmosphere; and glimpses of a wise ghost," predicts Bookreporter.com

The Lucky One will mark the fifth Sparks adaptation, after Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, and most recently, Nights in Rodanthe.
