Ten Things I Hate about You by David LevithanBuzzword A Thon
Golden Girls Read A Thon: Read a book that includes female friendships
When I was 13 years old 10 Things I Hate About You was my favorite movie. I think I saw it in the theater at least 3x. I loved it! This movie was the first time I ever saw Heath Ledger and it was love at first sight. I was also still nursing my crush on Andrew Keegan(what ever happened to him) and I thought Julia Stiles was the coolest. Im tempted to rewatch the movie but I fear I wont enjoy it as much as an adult.
If Im being honest this book is probably a 2 star read but my nostalgia for the movie caused me to up the rating. 10 Things I Hate About You is a retelling of William Shakespeares The Taming Of The Shrew. Bianca the most popular sophomore at Padua High wants to date but cant until her older sister Kat does and Kat has no interest in dating or parties. So Cameron one of the 2 boys vying for Bianca comes up with a plan to get Kat to go out with school bad boy Patrick.
Despite the condensed and rushed nature of the book it did make me want to watch the movie again. If for no other reason than to see a young Heath Ledger.

In the film we see that he becomes Joey's main man. Kat is highly against dating and sneers when she comes to hearing the word teenage social life. In the film we gradually start to see Kat change when she falls in love with Patrick and her relationship with her sister Bianca becomes much stronger. During the film we see that Kat get accepted into Sarah Lawrence College which her father does not want her to attend but eventually lets her go. As well we see Kat getting kicked out of the classroom to often for expressing her opinions, life can be so weird sometimes. His friends in the film are Michael and later on Patrick becomes a really close friend. As the film proceeds on wards we start to see that Cameron is getting closer and closer to getting the girl of his dreams.
Although in many film texts this is not the case. However, they ended up falling for Kat and Katharina who have been set up as the archetypal shrews in both films. Even the name itself is a bit offensive. It implies that films having female characters are appealing just to women spectators, and films with men, as protagonists are more commonly considered as widespread, while. Jami Ross is also a student of nursing, Murray State College.
There are some movies that are so wonderful, so iconic that they set the standards for every movie that comes after it. Every time I watch another teen movie, I compare it to this. If it disappoints, I think "why couldn't you have been cute and clever like 10 Things? But probably not. Science sure hasn't done me much good lately.

Sign in. He is then shown around the school by Michael, who will become his best friend. During his tour is when Cameron first sees Bianca Stratford, a beautiful sophomore with one problem: she isn't allowed to date.

His choice: Patrick Verona, a bad-boy with a mysterious reputation--some say he ate a live duck once, others that he lit a state trooper on fire, and even more claim that he had a brief porn career.
Directed by Gil Junger. The movie 10 Things I Hate About You features a teenaged woman who, we are repeatedly told, is a feisty rebel. For a moment, she actually lives up to the billing.

Stiles responds beautifully: "Romantic?
