Reviews
"As readable as it is informative, Susannah Gora's book sets these influential films into a cultural and cinematic context--and provides compelling behind-the-scenes stories about the people who made them."--Leonard Maltin

"A must-have for fans of '80s teen flicks...what makes it so readable is the juicy, behind-the-scenes stuff."-- Mike Householder, Associated Press

"Gora interviews all the major actors and players anew, and knits together a narrative that, in the end, gives fans a clear, sound understanding of what commercial and cultural forces produced these films -- "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Say Anything" and more -- and why they still mean a great deal to so many." -- Chicago Sun-Times

"I've become addicted to Susannah Gora's new book, "You Couldn't Ignore Me If You Tried," her masterful documentation of Hughes and the Brat Pack films." --Steve Spears, St. Petersburg Times
