  2. Wow, lots of great news. I love the fact that Emma Thompson is going to be in Beautiful Creatures. And, I actually like the girl they casted for Lena better than I like their Ethan...but I'm sure it'll all work out okay.

  6. We can't stand that these people made a decision to w Ethan for Lena idont believe she is a poor option simply so long as your woman coloured the woman's locks as well as would wear connections.

I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why.
