The Casting Couch Challenge

Alysia is making me think tonight!  Her Casting Couch Challenge requires me to imagine a book I've read during read-a-thon is being made into a movie - who would I cast as the main character?  Hmmm.....

I just finished Wonder Show, a YA novel about a teen-age girl who is left at a bleak, prison-like home for "wayward girls".  She runs away and joins the circus to look for her missing father.  I picture the main character, Portia, as tall and lanky with an understated beauty.   Portia reminded me a bit of Katniss from the Hunger Games series - quiet but strong, a tough exterior with a tender heart - so I am casting Jennifer Lawrence, who played Katniss, in the role of Portia.


  1. Jennifer Lawrence great pick!!! She was in Silver Linings Playbook and was fantastic! Looks like you had a great Readathon! See you tomorrow!

  2. Congrats!!! You won the Casting Couch Mini Challenge

    1. Thanks, Alysia! Thanks for hosting a fun challenge.

  3. Jennifer Lawrence could definitely do this role. She's fantastic!
    I didn't realize you were doing the Readathon, too.
