Now that you're out of school...

...all you smart and literate Burbank teens...how about writing some book reviews for this blog? The "book review guidelines" can be found under a tab at the top of this page (and you should definitely look at them), but if you want an example of how your review should be structured, scroll down a ways and look at Melissa's review of Getting Over Garrett Delaney to see the proper format.

If you need a bigger incentive than seeing your immortal words in PRINT (well, in blog print), here are TWO:

1. You can get credit for one service hour for every book review you write (think how much more fun this is than cleaning DVDs or straightening shelves);

2. If you are in 9th-12th grade, you will be entered in a DRAWING for a valuable prize, if you write the review between now and July 23rd. We will draw a name to win that prize on July 24th at our Teen Summer Reading Club finale, which is an Open Mic Night and Poetry Slam.

So...how about reading a book just for fun (see "book lists" blog below for suggestions), warming up those typing fingers, and emailing a book review to burbank.teens@gmail.com?
