Readathon - Mini-challenge 1

Here is the challenge:


Look through the pile and take a picture of the cover you like the best, for whatever reason. It can be the prettiest, the oddest, the brightest...Flip the book over and look at the blurb (or look on the inside of the jacket).


Now here's the fun, little kid part - recreate the blurb anyway you want. What I'm looking for is some kind of tableau that expresses the main thrust of the book's plot (which the blurb should hopefully capture). You can recreate it using action figures, poppets, stuffed toys, lego creatures, models made from bluetack and paper clips, anything you can find around the house. If you're feeling really ambitious you can get people to help you out - dress them up and take a picture of them acting out the main idea behind the book. Mock it up quickly and have fun doing it :) Snap a picture of whatever you create. The challenge runs from 2pm - 4pm (GMT).

My book is So Not Happening - I picked it because I liked the pig on the cover!


Here is my "scene" to depict the blurb:

Yay I was hoping someone would have cause to use farm animal figures - can you tell me what's going on in the blurb?

Impressed by the needlepoint banner btw, is that all your own work?

LOL Love it. You didn't say what the blurb was but I see a girl's arriving at a farm?

Oh it's a rich city girl who has to live on a farm! That has to be horrible for her!

Didn't mean to leave out what the book was about - girl living in NYC, parents divorce, mom falls in love with a man who lives on a farm in Oklahoma - she is forced to move....
