Can a student earn money reviewing books for LitPick?
Experienced LitPick student reviewers who have repeatedly demonstrated that they can write well-written and supported reviews in a timely manner, will be specially asked to become part of an elite "A Team" of LitPick reviewers. This A Team reads and reviews books submitted for Rapid or Guaranteed Reviews, and for each Rapid or Guaranteed Review that they complete, the student reviewer will receive an Amazon.com gift certificate.
Do LitPick student reviewers get to keep the book that they review?
Yes, reviewers keep printed review books after their book review is posted on our site. Reviewers can also keep eBook review copies. However, the LitPick honor code for student reviewers includes a pledge not to share print or eBook copies with anyone else out of respect for the authors and publishers who have entrusted us with these new YA books.
How can students outside of the United States become LitPick book reviewers?

We have hundreds of eBooks on our online booklist that are available for review, and we welcome reviewers from all over the world to join us.
Do you have to be a good reader to become a LitPick student book reviewer?
No, not at all. You just need to love to read books (especially new book releases) and be willing to write your opinions about what you read. Students choose the books they want to review from a booklist online. We do not assign our student book reviewers books to review.
How does a student reviewer earn points and badges?
You can earn points and badges for each book review, forum post, correct answer in our vocabulary quiz, and for well-written book reviews.
