""Into the Woods" is coming out in theaters in December. This movie is based on Grimm's Fairy Tales which teens might enjoy re-reading. They are incredibly dark! "

"I have had so many boys that actually enjoyed Smile even though they thought it looked "girly". Graphic novels seem great for the minds that want images in association with words. I personally have enjoyed the ones with colorful…"
