Would really love some suggestions for a new title, and also any suggestions for improvements to the query. Happy to return the favor if you direct me to your thread.
Taylor, a driven seventeen-year-old dancer on the fast track to ballet stardom, is devastated when an Achilles injury forces her to take time off. Cloistered by years of classes, rehearsals and auditions, Taylor longs to experience love. So she joins her best friend, Beks, and her parents, on vacation in Ireland, fantasizing about meeting someone special. Being a true best friend, Beks has arranged for them to escape the parents and meet two four-alarm guys, Jimmy and Niall, whom she’s been chatting with online for months.
The guys entice the girls on a sightseeing trip to an island with a hair-raising, allegedly fictitious, legend about vengeful sea creatures. Taylor thinks she’s found the summer romance she’s longed for until a freak storm capsizes the boat, leaving them stranded on the island.
When Beks goes missing, Taylor searches the island and makes a grim discovery. The guys are far from summer romance material. There’s another legend, this one all too real and deadly, and the girls are about to become a part of it. Taylor formulates a dangerous escape plan that could end not only her dream of a dance career, but also her life.
TWISTED SEA SERPENT SISTERS, complete at 83,000 words, is a YA thriller that puts a modern twist on an ancient Irish legend.
