Fun Facts about Youth In Revolt by C.D. Payne

Here are a couple of fun facts about Youth In Revolt...

Before Youth In Revolt became a movie...

• The author, C.D. Payne actually self published this book. In fact, he has self-published all of his books. I found that out when reading the "about the author" section at the end of Youth In Revolt.

• The year after the book was released (1994), a stage production was made based on the book. It was made by Carl Hamilton and Bob Warden and was seen on stage in San Francisco. It was highly unsuccessful, but later had a little more success in different cities.

• A TV pilot was filmed in 1998 based on the book. It was created by MTV and Fox Productions, but unfortunately didn't go any further than the first episode.

Did you know that?
