The Secrets Of Us

The secrets of us by Lucinda Berry is a good novel with some real plot twists. I felt attracted to the two characters, Krystal and Nichole, as I learn what has caused a present-day melt-down. The narrative of the story switches between Krystal’s perspective in present day, as she tries to unpick the cause behind Nichole’s apparent break-down.

Overview

Book blurb — an attention-grabbing summary that’s between one hundred and three hundred word

Writing a blurb ahead of time can provide a clear focal point — and prevent the story from meandering or spiraling out of control.

My blurb-writing process has three steps: a pitch list, test drive, and redesign.

Types of plot twists
  • Clever: A clever plot twist uses story constraints to throw in an interesting twist that is just clever. You didn’t see it coming, but when it happens, you think, "Oh, that is so good." 
  • Revealing: This plot twist culminates in the answers to uncertainty in your story. 
  • Shocking: This twist completely reverses what you believe is true in the story. In the end, it leaves readers thinking, "Boy, I did not see that coming."
