In terms of the activity for the Reading Challenge, I’m asking the participants to create the cover and write a short synopsis to go along with it.
Here is mine:
Sophie, a.k.a. Alexxxis, has been working nights at Wild Horse for a year and so far has been able to keep it a secret from everyone at school. Until last night.
Chip, blindfolded and dragged by his friends to Wild Horse for his eighteenth birthday, doesn't know what to expect when he is plopped down right in front of the stage, but when he saw Sophie walk out on stage and take her clothes off, he couldn't believe his eyes. Why would Straight A Sophie be working in the raunchiest strip club in town?
The next day at school, no matter how hard she tried to hide from Chip, he seemed to pop up everywhere. Afraid Chip would spread the news about her after school job, she decided to confront him and beg him not to talk.
Sophie never expected Chip to come into her life and definitely didn't expect the amount of strength she would get from just having him to talk to. Maybe, just maybe Sophie will gain the courage to take control of her life.Now it is your turn to create your own cover and synopsis. You have until the end of the day Saturday, July 24th.
