Spring Break Reading Challenge #6: Create-a-Cover

Spring Break Reading Challenge

Today's Spring Break Reading Challenge was so much fun! Create a book cover!
Here are the guidelines for today's challenge:

1 – Go to “Fake Name Generator” The name that appears is your author name.
2 – Go to “Random Word Generator” The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.
3 – Go to “FlickrCC” Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.
4 – Use Picnik, or something similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.
In terms of the activity for the Reading Challenge, I’m asking the participants to create the cover and write a short synopsis to go along with it. Check out my cover from the Holiday Break Reading Challenge for an example.

Here is mine!

Jude (AKA the girl with the cigarette) has a bad reputation, and she likes it that way. She doesn't care about school, hence why she constantly ditches. She doesn't care about her parents because, frankly, they don't care about her. She's just trying to get through high school, so she can leave her "sucky" life behind and start over somewhere new. But what happens when she meets Trevor, the new kid with a bad reputation of his own...


  1. Nice job. Thanks so much for participating.

  2. Thanks! I had a lot of fun with this.
