Hulu is diving in to Wattpad properties for the first time without a new YA series!
The streaming service just gave a straight-to-series order to Light As A Feather, a YA adaptation based on Zoe Aarsen’s horror novel of the same name, which follows a group of teens who play the popular game at a sleepover, then begin to die in the same ways predicted during the game.
The supernatural thriller has a snarky bite to it– Think The Craft meets Mean Girls.
According to Deadline, the project produced by Wattpad Studios and Awesomeness TV will debut just in time for Halloween chills on October 12, 2018.
Like many popular Wattpad properties, the novel has been picked up by a publisher. Simon Teen will formally release the novel on October 9, 2018, just three days before its screen debut. You can preorder it now via Amazon or support your local bookstore via Indiebound.
It was supposed to be a game…
Junior year is shaping up to be the best of McKenna Brady’s life. After a transformative summer, McKenna is welcomed into the elite group of popular girls at Weeping Willow High, led by the gorgeous Olivia Richmond. For the first time in a long time, things are looking up.
But everything changes the night of Olivia’s Sweet Sixteen sleepover. Violet, the mysterious new girl in town, suggests the girls play a game during which Violet makes up elaborate, creepily specific stories about the violent ways the friends will die. Though it unsettles McKenna, it all seems harmless at the time.
Until a week later, when Olivia dies…exactly as Violet predicted.
As Violet rises to popularity and steps into the life Olivia left unfinished, McKenna becomes convinced Olivia’s death wasn’t just a coincidence, especially when a ghost haunting her bedroom keeps leaving clues that point to Violet. With the help of her cute neighbor, Trey, McKenna pledges to get to the bottom of Violet’s secrets and true intentions before it’s too late. Because it’s only a matter of time before more lives are lost.
