Thanks to all who participated in the Teen Read Month Fan Fiction story-writing! We had a truly eclectic bunch of stories from our 11 participants, who were an assorted group themselves--the youngest in 6th grade, the oldest in 12th, from schools all over Burbank as well as Glendale and South Pasadena. Here is the array of inspirations for fanfic from our teens:

  • One based on Harry Potter
  • Two based on Hetalia anime series
  • Two based on TV shows (Supernatural, and Teen Titans)
  • Two based on movies (Resident Evil 4, and Pacific Rim)
  • One based on a classic (A Separate Peace, by John Knowles)
  • Three based on popular teen fiction (The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green, Adventurers Wanted, by M. L. Forman, and the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan)

The three top stories (equal standing, in no particular order) were written by:
  • Johanna L. -- "Welcome Back, Stranger" based on Supernatural (The CW)
  • K.J.M. -- "Airplanes," based on the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
  • Jack W. -- "Into the Past," based on Adventurers Wanted, by M. L. Forman
We have special awards for these three, which can be picked up from Melissa at the Central Library next week (Monday thru Friday). We also have a smaller gift for each of the participants (but we think you will like it!), and you can pick that up at either Central or Buena Vista. Email to let us know where and when you'd like to retrieve your accolade!
