Walter Mak Kiu-shun, 15, Ma On Shan St Joseph's Secondary School No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay. This well-written thriller revolves around Cynthia, who wakes up to find her parents and brother have vanished. The day before, Cynthia had had a big argument with her father. Twenty-five years later, she is a happily married mother but the past continues to haunt her. I think this novel has the potential to be a successful movie. It includes different elements, like the loving relationship between Cynthia and her husband, and the mystery surrounding the sudden disappearance of her family. I think a film based on this book can fulfil the expectations of a target audience. If the filmmakers can flesh out the characters, it would be a great movie. Qurahtulain, 19, Youth College The first book that comes to my mind is Nightmare Academy by Dean Lorey. I won this book from Young Post. At first, I thought this was just another novel similar to the Harry Potter series. But, as I began to read it, I found it to be very interesting. I was even happier when I discovered there was a sequel to the book. I really wish there would be a movie based on Nightmare Academy. In this excellent novel, children's nightmares open portals to the Netherworld, where horrible creatures live. I learned a lesson here: 'Never judge a book by its cover.' Kelvin Yu Chun-yin, 12, Sing Yin Secondary School I would like to turn the autobiography about Nobel physics laureate Dr Charles Kao Kuen - K. C. Kao, A Time And A Tide - into a movie. He is a very successful scientist, and a role model for young people. He is known as the 'Father of Fibre Optics', a key technology behind the internet. Although many people disagreed with his idea of inventing fibre optics a long time ago, he did not give up. His perseverance is an inspiration for everybody. A film about Kao can encourage young people to become scientists and continue the city's technological advances. Alex Ko, 15, Po Leung Kuk No 1 W.H. Cheung College The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, written by Sherman Alexie, revolves around Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on an Indian reservation in the United States. The teenager is a regular target of bullies but he always has a smile on his face. He decides to stand up against racial discrimination by joining an all-white school. His story is truly inspiring. Teens complain so much nowadays. A movie adapted from this award-winning book can help youngsters learn from Junior's attitude. The film would also help adults have a better understanding of the younger generation and have a few laughs along the way. We have too many violent films. This would be a nice change - a charming, light-hearted movie for the whole family.
