Stacey Lee's "Under a Painted Sky"

Stacey Lee is a fourth-generation Chinese American. A Southern California native, she graduated from UCLA and got her law degree at UC Davis King Hall. Now she plays classical piano, wrangles children, and writes young adult fiction.

Under a Painted Sky is her first novel.

Here Lee dreamcasts an adaptation of the novel:
Sammy: Katie Leung. Katie is known for her first role as Harry Potter's first girlfriend. She has a sweet aura about her. I would love to see her play tough.

Annamae: Zoe Saldana. I love her no-nonsense vibe.

West: Liam Hemsworth. He does dark and brooding well.

Cay: Ryan Philippe. Golden boy down to the blond curls. Perfect.

Peety: Diego Luna. He's good at sensitive and he's funny.

Directed by: Ang Lee, of course! He's Chinese and won an Oscar for directing the western Brokeback Mountain.
