Rachel Wilson is #sorrynotsorry about this trailer.

Here’s a trailer for your teacher newsletter. Or if you have a way to send it directly to teen readers, I dare them to watch it and not want to read Don’t Touch by Rachel M. Wilson.

Step on a crack, break your mother’s back,
Touch another person’s skin, and Dad’s gone for good . . .

Creepy nursery rhymes, Shakespeare, and a compelling book trailer that’s really well done. The teen reader’s trifecta.

Rachel writes about making the trailer on her blog.

We shot enough footage for a short film, and we found movie-worthy talent, so if the Don’t Touch trailer looks and feels like a mini movie, I’m officially #sorrynotsorry.

The trailer was released yesterday and already has received more than 500 views. I think I’d be #sorrynotsorry, too.
