Why do teen movies from the 1980s endure? In his new book "Brat Pack America," San Francisco-based author Kevin Smokler celebrates films like "The Breakfast Club," "Back to the Future" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" through interviews with cast members, fun trivia and visits to iconic locations including the Chicago suburbs and Santa Cruz (Santa Carla in "The Lost Boys"). We'll talk to him about the book, and we want to hear from you: What '80s teen flick ruled your world?
