This is the query I came up with for it. It isn't perfect, but I'm working on it:
Come her eighteenth birthday, seventeen-year-old Marylyn Greyer will be on the first Greyhound bus out of Dunmore, Virginia. She’s going to be a famous actress on Broadway.
Her life is anything but glamorous. She lives at home with her momma and her new boyfriend, Rick, a filthy drunk who can’t seem to keep his hands to himself. Every day she reminds herself that things are going get better once she leaves Dunmore.
But that day never comes when her momma uses her savings to pay last month’s bills. To get away from the situation at home, Marylyn takes a job at a local restaurant waiting tables. There she meets a smooth talking handsome young man by the name of Connor Mason. Everything changes from then on as Marylyn transforms into a social butterfly, walking, talking, and dressing differently. Her relationship with Connor is explosive and exciting. They spend as much time fighting as they do sleeping together.
I even have a theme song for it:
One of my resolutions for 2012 and coming years is to write at least one novel for that year. My other resolution: Read more, a lot more since this year was a very disappointing year for me. I have a ton of books on my wishlist and a ton of books that I've started and haven't finished yet. I should be pretty busy. I'm looking forward to the new year. Here's hoping that we all get some good news.
Happy New Year!
