This week's cover: Getting ready for 'Divergent'

Not every movie adapted from a popular Young Adult novel is necessarily a guaranteed hit. For every Twilight or Hunger Games, there are plenty of others that didn’t manage to reach the same heights. (Think: Beautiful Creatures, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Vampire Academy, for example.)

This week’s cover story takes a close look at Divergent — based on the best-selling series by Veronica Roth and in theaters March 21 — starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James and directed by Neil Burger (Limitless).

EW asked the cast and crew at the Mortal Instruments: City of Bones premiere in Los Angeles which stories they hoped were true — and got some interesting answers. Ranging from the fantastical to the medicinal to rock and roll legends, the people who brought TMI to life share their wistful wishes below:
