Summer Break Reading Challenge Activity #9: Your Book In Pictures

Okay, so for the ninth challenge in the Summer Break Reading Challenge we have to do the following:

"A picture is worth a thousand words." We've all heard that quote over the years and now it is time to put it to the test. Here is what you have to do: 1. Think about the book you are reading right now (or one you just finished) and choose key scenes, settings, and characters that would give people a good idea what the story is about. 2. Using the Internet, find pictures to represent those scenes, settings, and characters. 3. Create a blog post using the pictures. Incorporate a little text to help out the reader, but remember, the pictures are the most important aspect of this activity.

For this activity I've chosen to focus on Cycler by Lauren McLaughlin.

As far as anyone at her high school knows, Jill McTeague is an average smart girl trying to get her dream date to ask her to the prom.

But what no one knows, except for Jill’s mom and dad, is that for the four days Jill is out of school each month, she is not Jill at all. She is Jack, a genuine boy...

—complete with all the parts—who lives his four days of the cycle in the solitude of Jill’s room.

But Jack’s personality has been building over the years since the cycling began.

He is growing less and less content with his confinement and his cycles are more frequent.

Now Jill’s question about prom isn’t about who she will go with, but who will she be when the big night arrives?
