Book Review - Annie: The Junior Novel
About the Book
A Broadway classic is back on the big screen December 19, 2014!
Relive all of your favorite Annie moments in this movie novel featuring eight-pages of color photos.
Annie is a foster kid who's had a hard knock life ever since her parents left her as a baby. She doesn't think she'll ever escape her mean foster mom, Miss Hannigan, but everything's about to change. Wanting to improve his image ahead of the election campaign, New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks takes Annie in. Stacks soon discovers that Annie's sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook just might be the thing he needs in his life.
This modern retelling stars some of Hollywood's biggest names, including Jamie Foxx (Will Stacks), Cameron Diaz (Miss Hannigan), Rose Byrne (Grace Farrell), and Academy Award nominated Quvenzhané Wallis (Annie). Director/Producer/Screenwriter Will Gluck has teamed up with producers James Lassiter, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, Shawn "JAY Z" Carter, Laurence "Jay" Brown, and Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith in this heart-warming Columbia Pictures film.
My Take on the Book
This book shares the plot and story of the new movie that is coming out soon. My daughter really enjoyed this and by the end said, "I want to see this movie"! The book was well written and shared a lot about the story and the movie to come. I read this with my daughter and I too have to say that if this book holds true to the movie, it should be a lot of fun!
