Bright Young Things - Anna Godbersen

Day 26: Name a Book You'd Like to See Turned into a Musical


The first book that came to mind was "Empress Orchid", but I think that was because I was drawing parallels to "The King and I".


I'm somewhat drawing a blank.  Is it because I think of musicals as typically frothy contemporary or historical fiction?  Is it because I don't read many of those books?  Or can I not think out of the box?


Oh wait!  Now I can think of something: Bright Young Things!  Set in the 1920's, there could be quite the "Annie" musical vibe about it, I think.  And an excuse for the pretty dresses and dancing would be AWESOME!
