Vote in the Thinking Sideways Contest!

Printz Award-winning author Meg Rosoff wrote her latest book, There is No Dog, by doing what she calls “thinking sideways.” To do this Meg says, “You have to train yourself to tilt your head a little bit to the side and squint at the world; to see it from a slightly different angle.” For the Thinking Sideways Contest, we challenged you to turn one of your favorite stories upside-down.

The entry period is now over, but you have another five days to vote! Voting will run until April 23, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST, at which point the 10 most-hearted entries will be judged by the Figment editorial team.

One grand-prize winner will receive a class set of 30 copies of There is No Dog for his or her school and a personal set of 20 awesome YA titles from Penguin. Nine runners-up will each receive smaller (but still super exciting) sets of 4 teen titles from Penguin.

So check out the stories below, and get voting!
