Book Hook

Book Hook Project: In this contest you enter your short paragraph or two which seeks to get the reader to want to read the book you are trying to sell.  Your Book Hook does not tell the entire book but it does give the reader enough information that they get an idea of what the book is about. (currently under revision)
