Enjoy. [Note: these book trailers are usually from YouTube and may not be accessible in the school environment.]

Summary:
Fifteen-year-old Cuss Brewster is not a criminal. Well, maybe a slight criminal in the state New York where he accidentally burns down his neighbor's barn. It's not his first fire-related mishap, so a judge tells Cuss, "Behave for the next six months, or you'll go to jail." But for Cuss, behaving is a lot harder than it seems. His mom's boyfriend hates Cuss and wants to send him to military school. Two weeks before his probation hearing, Cuss crashes The Boyfriend's Porsch. Cuss can almost taste the prison food...

Author Deborah Prum explains how she made her own trailer ---

First, I listed the essential elements I needed to include in the trailer: title, author, cover art, main plot points, purchase information, attribution for artwork and photos. Then, I created a storyboard, using a sheet of paper for each element in the trailer, keeping in mind that I wanted the trailer length to come in under 50 seconds. I used Flickr’s Creative Commons to search for appropriate photos, making certain that I could legally use them with attribution. I used iMovie on my MacBook Pro to create the trailer and uploaded one of their sound clips to accompany it. - Deborah Prum
