Redesign a Book Cover Submissions

We asked teens in grades 6-12 to redesign their favorite or least favorite book covers in September. Here are the amazing submissions we received! Stop by the Teen Zone to see all of their FANTASTIC redesigns. They will be up until October 14th in honor of Teen Read Week.

We also picked three submissions at random to win some awesome prizes. Prizes like autographed books, book bags, and book worm socks (lol).  Here are the covers that won:
