A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl

By Tanya Lee Stone

Exciting news for teen readers! Tanya Lee Stone's critically-acclaimed A BAD BOY CAN BE GOOD FOR A GIRL is now available in paperback. I'm excited that Tanya agreed to participate in my GCC Does Hollywood blog post, but before I get into it, I want to give you the chance to pop over to Amazon and see the reader reviews this book's been getting. Incredible! Everyone loves this book.

And now, here's in Tanya's fast pitch to our fictional movie producer:

Three girls. One guy. Who comes out on top?
When can a bad boy be good for a girl?
Don't let the title scare you. It’s a cautionary tale. About how the choices girls make shape who they want to be. Going in with open arms and open eyes. Empowerment.

Perfect pitch, don't you think? And now here's how Tanya would cast it:

I think Vanessa Ann Hudgens from high school musical could do a great job being a tough, powerful chick who learns something about herself. Let’s see her bring out her bad side and play Nicolette.

Miley Cyrus, minus the accent, would be a great Aviva. She would do well playing a girl who’s on the fringe but still totally cool, and she can sing.

And Dakota Fanning, in a couple of years, would be perfect as Josie. Clean-cut, confident, and ultimately not letting a guy sway her from who she really is. And let's face it, movies take awhile to be made, so the timing could be just perfect!

The paperback edition of A BAD BOY CAN BE GOOD FOR A GIRL is in stores now, so I hope you'll pick up a copy. At very least, head over to the YA section and check it out while you're there to get your copy of the latest Harry Potter. Of course, it's also available from online booksellers, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and BookSense. For more information, visit Tanya's website at

We have Jordan Rosenfeld as a mutual friend. Blame her for making me do the following:

I've been a Bad Boy.

Ellen Meister,
you are Tagged.

Blame it on Susan D,
she is surely the culprit,
& I am merely the conduit!
