37 YA Contemporary

TITLE: Two Scoops of Gelatto
GENRE: YA Contemporary


Running away in the middle of the night seems romantic and daring, but it’s not. It’s a serious pain in the butt.

  2. I agree with Holly: Humor, even irony, captures my attention. The style is appealing and I want to be further entertained.

  9. I like it, but I think you could do more with it. Running at night isn't a pain in the butt, unless she/he falls on her/his butt in the next sentence. It's a pain in the shins when you run into stuff you can't see and in the ankles when you twist them stepping in rabbit holes. I'd take the old cliche and play around with it a bit more. But that's, of course, jmho. :) Good luck!

  15. Hooked. I want to read on to find out who's running away and why, and what pain-in-the-butt adventures it leads to.

  16. like the romantic idea of running away, but doesn't go with pain in the butt (hemorrhoids) for me.

    Not hooked

  17. Not hooked. Show her in the process of running away, or show the thing that is the pain in the butt happening to her. Put her in the situation instead of talking about it.
