Ok...admission time. I HATE teen summer reading. Summer time for teens can be complicated -- volunteering, working, summer school (for extra credit to get ahead even), babysitting younger siblings, and having fun with their friends. If teens enjoy reading during their leisure time, the simple fact is that they will do it anyway. Reader teens might appreciate prizes for doing something they would already do, but no free books or gift cards will make them read more. Also, no prizes are going to make teens read during the summer when they don't like it or have other things that they need to do. I know this might seem anecdotal, but I have actual numbers to support this once we got rid of teen summer reading for something else...so hold on to socks!
