I’m hoping to bounce some ideas off of you all and give my humble opinions if I can help anyone else. Still trying to figure out how all these forums work, so this may be misplaced in this Introductions section. But I am looking for critiques of the hook of a young adult novel I’m working on: “In rural West Virginia, 17 year-old Ariel struggles with the loss of her parents while evil forces battle for her soul and a brooding winged stranger claims her heart.” February 1, 2018 at 2:01 pm #655477 AngelinaK52Participant Welcome to the forums.
