Wattpad’s “Float” by Kate Marchant to be Adapted, Starring Robbie Amell

Kate Marchant’s (known to her Wattpad fans as ToastedBagels) mega-popular book, Float, is being adapted into a movie! It was just announced today that Robbie Amell will star in and produce the film! As of this posting on September 22, the book has amassed over 25 million reads on Wattpad. I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve had it in my private library FOREVER!

Keep reading to check out the synopsis of the book! Read more about the adaptation at the Variety article here.

Synopsis (via Wattpad):

Seventeen-year-old Waverly Lyons is from Alaska. She doesn’t do sun. But after her divorced parents can’t agree on who gets to have her for the summer, Waverly gets shipped off to Holden, Florida, to spend a couple months with her aunt, Rachel. There’s one minor hiccup: Blake Hamilton, Rachel’s seventeen-year-old neighbor. He’s athletic, outgoing, arrogant, tan, and pretty much Waverly’s exact opposite. She’s eager to avoid him at all costs, hoping to fit in with the other kids in Holden without drawing too much attention to herself. But when Blake discovers that Waverly has been hiding the rather embarrassing secret that she can’t swim, he does the unthinkable: He offers to teach her.


I’m so excited to see this movie! What Wattpad books would you love to see adapted? Let me know in the comments!
