I’m not sure I agree with Colbert’s quip about YA being ‘ghettoized’, but I can’t help but enjoy his comment that “…As far as [Colbert] can tell, a young adult novel is a regular novel that people actually read.” If only that were true for all YA novels…

    This is one of the few times when the movie is better than the book. So much better… Shailene woodley and Ansel Elgort breathed life into the characters…so brilliant! Flawless they were! I havent cried like this in a movie in forever. I just couldnt stop crying! Beautiful!
