Congratulations to the 42 teens who played the Beast Battle Royale Teen Summer Reading Game! You collectively submitted over 400 reviews, many of which were downright hilarious, or  blatantly honest, and often richly descriptive (some of you even won prizes for your penmanship, but more on that later!).  You also voted multi-headed Mythological  Beastie HYDRA as the ultimate champion in the Tournament of Terror. Talk about having the advantage of ‘putting your heads together’ to accomplish something!

In addition, a belated congratulations to everyone who won prizes for participating in the summer reading game. Some of the winners were chosen through a random drawn of all players who finished the game, while others were hand picked for submitting the most creative, funny, or well written reviews. All prize winners have aleady been notifed, and many have already been in to pick up the aweseme prizes donated by our generous local sponsors! Enjoy your well deserved goodies 🙂
