Gemma Halliday's Top Ten Favorite Teen Movies + Giveaway

Today I welcome author Gemma Halliday.  I reviewed her YA book, Deadly Cool earlier this week which I loved, it has mystery, a cool heroine and an interesting boy, what more could you want.  Today Gemma is talking about her favorite teen movies.  See if you see one or more of your favorites on this list, I know I do.




Top Ten Favorite Teen Movies of All Time
by Gemma Halliday


I have a huge soft spot for teen movies, whether they're dramatic coming of age films or
total slapstick comedies. Granted, I was a teen kind of a while ago now, but I still enjoy
reliving those years vicariously though the screen. So, here are my fav teen movies of all
time:

1. 16 Candles
(I'm a sucker for first love.)

2. The Breakfast Club
(Teen angst galore.)

3. Rebel Without a Cause
(James Dean - the original teen Bad Boy.)

4. Ferris Buller's Day Off
(Save Ferris!)

5. Say Anything
(So sweet, so romantic, so eighties.)

6. Clueless
(Like, totally as if!)

7. Scream
(I'll admit it. I scream my lungs out the first tie I saw this one.)

8. Mean Girls
(I so went to school with some of these girls.)

9. Superbad
(McLovin… an instant classic!)

10. Heathers
(The ultimate anti-establishment film.)


So, what are some of your favorite teen movies?

Great picks! I asked my almost teen son the same thing and he said "Scott Pilgrim vs the World".
