“You may know him from Lemonade Mouth, a hit Disney Channel movie adapted from his second novel that premiered this spring, but Mark Peter Hughes has always been a writer. Even when he was an engineer.  The past year has been a wild ride…” more

A message from Lemonade Mouth author Mark Peter Hughes:

Tonight’s the night. At 8pm tonight the Disney Channel will finally premiere the Lemonade Mouth movie in the USA, and people will get a chance to actually see it. It doesn’t seem that long ago that the film’s producer, Debra Martin Chase, first called me (a huge surprise at my house!) to say that she loved my book and was going to somehow make it into a movie. I was thrilled, thrilled, of course, but deep down I think I had a hard time believing it would ever really happen. And yet here we are.

I want to thank the Disney Channel, the filmmakers, and the many, many talented folks who worked on the project for the huge honor they’ve done for me and my story. I’ve previewed the movie twice so far, and I can honestly say that I’m proud of what they’ve done with my story. IMHO it’s a beautiful film, and it stays true to the characters and messages I tried to convey in the book: those of speaking out, banding together, honoring families of all kinds, and acknowledging the importance of each of us. These are values I wanted to express to readers, and I’m thrilled that now the same messages will go out to millions of kids and all over the world.

For that I’m honored and humbled.
