8 Judges The Covers Again

A few weeks ago, I played a game with my daughter, whom I will call 8. It works because that’s how old she is. This game we played was based off a Huffington Post article where a child guessed what classic novels were about based on their covers. I recreated it, with Young Adult book covers and 8.  She loved it – and so did all of you! Seriously all the comments made he so happy!! So here we go, round two with my daughter, 8.
Want to see what the book i s really about? Click the cover to see!

Please remember, I type exactly as she speaks it…

11715276Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood: Is about a girl who was born by a witch and she’s evil in a way, and she’s kind of different in her class. she goes to a jail that’s five miles into the ocean and she opens up the cages and lets all the bad people out. And she becomes their queen.


Thumped by Megan McCafferty: It’s about girl that is 25 and is still in college and she’s going to school to be a doctor and she gets really thumped and just can’t figure out the questions on her tests.

8685622Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison: It’s about a girl named Bridget who was walking in the field and kind of passes out then they have this big funeral because they think she’s dead. Her body is dead but not the rest of her. And there is a person who takes everyone he finds walking in the field and gives them funerals too even though they are not really dead.


TEN by Gretchen McNeil: It’s about these 10 teenagers that get trapped on an island for between 3-10 days and there’s a killer on the island and every day someone dies and gets killed for food – or something.


Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton: There is this bad angel that kind of swoops down on people, like a bird with her weird looking swords and she makes them bad angels as well. And she swoops in on good angels and kills them.


Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater: this forest that is haunted kind of and they used it for a wedding and the wedding girl turned into a tree and because of that everyone else turned into trees too. The trees take the peoples souls and the forest which is evil wants to make everyone a tree. But there is one good tree and it tries not to hurt everyone and tries to stop all the bad trees.


The Dirt by Lori Culwell: So there’s a really fashionable girl and this this goth girl and they are actually twins but they don’t know it. So they kind of switch bodies in a way and then they find out what the other ones life is like. (I would like to add that since she is only 8, the cursive title made her think it was called “On The Diet” lol!)
