  9. Is this only the setup? It reads like your entire novel is her deciding if she should jump or not, and while that is interesting, it's not much of a plot. If you're saying that she DOES jump and it's then that she realizes that she's probably going to die (because of the bones), that's great but I still want to know what happens next.

    Good luck!

    1. Hi Holly! Thank you so much for the feedback and question. Yes, this is the set up to the first plot point, where its discovered that this entire ritual is built on a lie. The rest of the novel moves forward from there once the pretty fairytale shimmer disappears and the dark underbelly is revealed.

    However I love it. I like the tension and it's absolutely intriguing to exactly what is going to happen next!!
    Best of luck!
