I particularly enjoy recommending it to those who turn their nose up at Young Adult books or write off the entire group of work simply because they’re written for teenagers. Yes, it is a good adventure series but it also explores some deep issues (civil war; terrorism; genocide) that could make for some really fascinating discussions.

Okay, okay. Enough of me yammering. Let’s get to the trailer.
