Out With A Bang Mini Challenge/Giveaway 2

Okay, are you ready for the second mini challenge? For this one I will be giving away sweet swag from the hosts, The Bookish Type and Book-Savvy, as well as a copy of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.

Another one of my favorite reads from 2010 was The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.
The Lovely Bones
When we first meet 14 year old Susie Salmon, she is already in Heaven.  This is before milk carton photos and public service announcements, she tells us; back in 1973, when Susie mysteriously disappeared, people still believed these things didn't happen.  In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place she finds herself.  It looks a lot like her school playground, with the good kind of swing sets.  With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief, her father embarks on a search for the killer, her sister undertakes a feat of amazing daring, her little brother builds a fort in her honor and begin in the difficult process of healing.  In the hands of a brilliant novelist, this story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching story about family, memory, love, heaven and living.

The Challenge:
 If you could pick one book that you read in 2010 and turn it into a movie, which book would that be?  Who would play the main characters?

I loved that book....haven't seen the movie yet.

My pick although I don't know how they'd pull it off with out a big Inception/Matrix style budget would be Idlewild by Nick Sagan.

Casting.... Rupert Grint would make a great Halloween.

I would either choose The Iron Daughter (so I could drool over Ash), or The Reapers are The Angels by Alden Bell which would probably make a truly epic horror movie if done right!
