Create- A- Cover

Activity #10 for the Summer Break Reading Challenge is to create a fake cover and write a short synopsis. I think is is my favorite activity to date! I've seen this done before on Karin's blog but this is the first time I've participated. For directions for this activity go here.

Modify by Wand J. Martin 
In a sport dominated by men, Cassie knows she has what it takes to be a world class motocross racer. So why is she dressed up as a Rockstar Girl passing out trophies to the likes of arrogant Shep Barnes, three time motocross national champion?

When Travis Pastrana comes to town a chance meeting sets the wheels in motion for Cassie to realize her dreams. But can they pull it off?

Everyone at the local dirt track will be in shock and awe when a mysterious new racer shows up out of the blue one day. None more so than Shep who, up until now, was the track's sensation. He makes it his personal mission to discover who the stranger is hiding behind the dark helmet.

Find out what happens when Cassie starts shifting gears and kicking rears!

For fun I'm posting the cover before my edits!

Good work! I love your description. I was expecting a plastic surgery novel!

I like that! I was also thinking plastic surgery, but then so she could be a man! :-)

lol...I almost wrote a synopsis about modifying a person but then I started to think about modified race cars and came up with this story. I guess I was thinking that Cassie modified herself from a Rockstar girl to an unknown racer (no one knew if it was a man or woman).
