About the Prize:

If you complete the Young Adult Challenge, you’ll be entered for a chance to win our prized pack of beauty products and the book of your choice from the next Random Reader Challenge.

Young Adult books morph you back into teenager mode, a time when braces, boys and prom were our number one concerns. Our Beauty Product Prize Pack is the perfect fit for this challenge, because each product will make you feel rejuvenated and get you looking and feeling like a teenager again!

Retail value of this prize is approximately $200.00

Frequently Anticipated Questions:

Q: I have already read and reviewed one of these books on my blog…can that count as my entry?

A: No, nice try. You must read and review one of the books during the challenge dates, March 1 - April 30.

Q: I live outside of Canada. Can I participate?

A: Yes! Of course, we welcome readers from around the world. However, for legal reasons, only Canadian residents excluding Quebec are eligible to win the prize.

Q: I don’t like this genre. Can I substitute another book instead?

A: Sorry, rules are rules. Part of this challenge series is to encourage you to break out of your comfort reading zone and try something new.

Q: What’s the next challenge going to be?

A: Sorry, that’s classified information.

Random Reader Challenge: Young Adult runs from Thursday, March 1 to Monday, April 30 at 11:59pm EST. Open to Canadian residents, excluding Quebec. Winners will be chosen at random from the eligible entries.
