Movie rights to the YA novel When Audrey Met Alice, written by Rebecca Behrens, have been purchased by a pair of Hollywood producers—setting the stage for a full-fledged adaptation in the coming few years.
The novel follows the daily life of Audrey Rhodes, the frustrated, neglected 13-year-old daughter of the President. When she discovers the diary of Teddy Roosevelt’s then-17-year-old daughter, Alice, Audrey becomes emboldened by her wild, rebellious attitude. Following the former First Daughter’s lead, Audrey finds both excitement and trouble through all manners of misadventures.
Few details have been released about the project so far, so we’ll have to keep an eye on how things progress. In the meantime, we can look forward to Behrens next novel Summer of Lost and Found, which comes out this May.
