About the film: A riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.
Rated PG-13 for some sensuality and violence.

I read something about this yeaterdsy. You'd be surprised at how many YA books have been sold to movie studios. Not all get picked up though. I really hope this one follows through though. I always thought it would make an excellent movie!Some other books that I know are in talks of being a movie... Divergent (did you go get your book yeaterdsy?! It's awesome!!), Shiver series, & If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

This was a really great thought provoking book. I read several parts of it over. I am looking forward to how the soul will be "portrayed" in Melanie's mind/body. It will be fun to see the insertion and the removal process and the cryotanks. I can picture it all so easily from the book's description. Can't wait to see those silver rimmed eyes.
