Help Needed!! Young Adult Librarians and Fellow Bloggers

If most of you don't know I am a Young Adult Librarian and I'm getting ready for Summer Reading 2015. I know that is early but for an event that is big like SRP I have to start early. For those of you that don't know what SRP is or what goes on during that time, it is programs being held for children all the way up to adults. Everyone is being accommodated :).  We all have a kick off and through out the whole summer we have programs and activities for everyone base on the theme for that summer.

For SRP 2015 the theme for Young Adults is Unmask. Everyone has the theme of Superheros it is just broken down.  

I am currently at a dead end. I would like some ideas or feedback from you guys about different program ideas that I could have at the library. It doesn't necessarily have to be "superhero" because unmask can go with a lot of other things. Here are some of the programs that I have come up with so far: 

1.) Unmasking my Identity.

She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape plan, complete with an accidental fiancĂ© she’s almost certain she can learn to love. But freedom comes with a price. To escape a doomed future and prove her innocence Rebecca must embrace the criminal within. Pre-order Available now at Amazon, B&N, Kobo & iTunes
