Activity #15 Create-a-Cover

I've done this one before and LOVE it!!!!

1 – Go to “Fake Name Generator” or click

The name that appears is your author name.
2 – Go to “Random Word Generator” or click
The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.
3 – Go to “FlickrCC” or click
Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.
4 – Use Picnik, or something similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.

5 - Link your Book Cover using Mr. Linky.
In terms of the activity for the Reading Challenge, I’m asking the participants to create the cover and write a short synopsis to go along with it.  
Here is my example:
"Judy Boom" has "owned" the skating rink for a couple of years.  As the youngest girl on her roller derby team, she has earned the respect of her teammates and other players from the league. Every spare moment she has is devoted to training or competing causing her to get a reputation at school for being rough, tough, and scary.
When Michael Williams comes to school in the middle of the semester, Judy finally sees someone she'd like to get to know, but will her reputation send him running away before she can even talk to him?  
Will "Judy Boom" find a way to balance the roller derby and her life outside the rink?
