RTW -- Off-the-Cuff Blurb

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:

You're re-reading one of your favs when someone asks the dreaded question: "What's that book about?" Give us your best off-the-cuff blurb of any book, any genre, and have your readers try to guess the title in the comments!

One girl goes on the run after taking revenge on the bandits that killed her mother and destroyed their farm. Along the way she meets a handsome and powerful mage who takes her under his wing. With him, she travels all the way to the courts of royalty where she discovers that she has more magic than she ever dreamed.

This is one of my favorite books of all time. What is it?

No idea (unless the above poster is correct, in which case I know it now). I've never heard of this, but it sounds great!

I have no clue. Tell us!

Alison Miller said...

Oh - this sounds amazing! But I don't. Know. What it is.

Coming back to find out later. :)

Caitlin's right. :D It's Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce.

Wow, I've read this but don't remember the bit about the revenge!

I didn't know it either - but great blurb!
