My novel, LESS THAN THREE, explores classic themes in young adult fiction: first loves and first losses, friendship, loyalty and self discovery. It also takes a look at something new, the shifting state of privacy in an electronic age.
“Muahahaha, I am brilliant,” fifteen-year-old Summer instant messages her best guy-friend on the last day of school. She’ll need every spark of that brilliance to find him a girl who isn’t ‘too much work’, to fend off Mom (who wants her to do something ‘meaningful’ this year) and to save her bff from a cheating jerk.
It doesn’t help that the jerk is her boyfriend’s best friend. Or that Brady (Boyfriend Extraordinaire) seems determined to cram Summer into a one-size-fits-all better girlfriend box. Then there’s Dave, the most aggravating boy in the universe. How could anyone, especially a ‘perfect’ boy, be jealous of him?
Meanwhile, everyone’s watching: Mom, bff, guy-friend and the entire blog-o-sphere of tiny New Concord, Indiana. Before the next school year starts Summer will discover: ‘perfect’ can be hard to define and ‘meaningful’ never meant so much.
You have a good idea. This hook doesn't showcase it. You mention the shifting stage of privacy but you never talk about it again.
You have character descriptions, not a hook. Start over. This has some promise.
