Remember when so many people thought Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t right to play Katniss in The Hunger Games that Suzanne Collins had to defend her?

All that has changed. She stars with big names Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro in the upcoming The Silver Linings Playbook but she’s the one grabbing the headlines. The movie is based on the debut novel by Matthew Quick (it was one of Nancy Pearl’s picks for summer reading, 2009). The trailer was just released; the movie opens Nov 21.

A tie-in edition is coming in Oct. (FSG/SarahCrichton, Trade Pbk, 9780374533571)
