We are inviting teens (ages 13 – 17) to create a video review of a book they recently read. The video can be shorter in the style of your favourite BookTok recommendations or longer Youtube style reviews. A winner will be selected and receive 2 tickets to Fan Expo 2023 in Toronto.


  • Submissions will be accepted June 30th to August 1st
  • One submission per person is allowed
  • Participant must be aged 13 – 17
  • Video length must be between a minimum of 40 seconds and maximum of 2minutes
  • The video should cover your favourite/least favourite parts of the book and if they would recommend it to others (please don’t just retell the plot!)
