When I First Saw You #8

29843-when-i-first-saw-you-logoHello writers! “When I First Saw You” is a link-up created and hosted by wonderful Sophie @ Sailing Through Books and it is co-hosted by the also wonderful Izel @ A Bookish Flower. To sum it all up, they give you four covers and you get to write your own synopsis based on the cover of the book.

Yep. When you do “WIFSY,” you are judging a book by its cover, in a good way.

I forgot to publish last month’s post because I was so excited and I suddenly got inspired to plan ahead for the Nanowrimo season! Anyway, I am going to do it this month because I really miss doing this link-up. It is probably one of the best link-ups in the history of link-ups. If you want to find out how this works, go here to see Sophie’s latest “WIFSY” post.

my synopsis

One list, approximately seven pages long. Here goes nothing.

Finn Benson knew that his one list couldn’t change anything. It couldn’t rewind the day both of his parents died. It couldn’t go back to the day where he got in a fight with his best friend Milo. It couldn’t go back to the day he was sent to his new parents. However, his list could make his life even better.

When summer vacation finally comes around, Finn persuades his adoptive parents on going around the country. Even though they don’t think it is the best idea, they think about his one list. The one list he had kept in his book about stars for ten years.

From spending the night after the zoo closes to staring at the stars with his high school sweetheart, Finn knows that this could be the best summer of his life.

the real deal

When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he’s got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn’t easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can’t complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian–the foster brother he hasn’t seen in five years.

Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He’s still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what’s really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives.


Woah. My mind is blown. *mind explodes*


To be honest, I love my synopsis. However, it was confusing to figure out a synopsis for A List of Cages. I am still very proud of my synopsis though. Let’s just say I may have to write a novel based on this “WIFSY” idea.

Going onto the subject about the real synopsis, I LOVE IT. I have never heard of Robin Roe, but this book sounds amazing! I have to read it once it comes out. These kinds of novels are the ones that I love the most.

what do you think about robin roe’s a list of cages? have you done “wifsy” this week? if so, comment the link to your’s below! i would love to see the cover you chose and your synopsis!

  1. Your synopsis is epic, haha. Incredibly specific, too. I really like the idea of this link up, sort of a creative writing judge-book-by-its-cover prompt. And hey, if you don’t have something for NaNo yet… *wiggles eyebrows*
