I just finished my major pass-through of revisions for the third Sary book. Yay! I have to admit I kind of love this book :) Big problem though? I have NO idea what to title it. Normally I get to this point and have a pretty good idea. This time, well, not so much... So, I thought I'd see if I could maybe get some help?
Here's a little (very, very rough so please don't judge) blurb to give you an idea what's happening:
Gabby knew it was going to be a crappy day the instant she saw the gun in Chad's backpack. While trying to stop Chad from doing the unthinkable, Gabby ends up wounded, and accidentally shows a classroom full of students her Sary wings. She knows what this means: she'll be made mortal and lose her position in the Sary.
When Jassen, heir to the leadership of the Sary, shows up on her doorstep, he offers her another option. She can remain with the Sary if she'll make amends with the classmates she exposed the truth to. It's a risky course, but Gabby's willing to try anything if it means she'll keep her wings. It soon becomes clear that Jassen has other plans for her, especially when Gabby starts to sense those around her who need the Sary's help.
To complicate matters, her best friend is falling love with one of the Sary brought in to help, and Jassen is tying Gabby's heart in knots. Things spiral out of control when Jassen's twin arrives, bent on using Gabby's mistake for his own ends: proving to the world that the Sary aren't just servants of suicidal mortals. Gabby will have to decide where her heart lies, and what rules need to be broken, if she can find a way to save herself and the Sary.
Ugh. This needs some work, but it gives an idea of what's up. So, here's my title ideas so far, and I'm totally up for new ones! To make this a little more fun, I'll select a random comment on Monday for some bookmarks :)
- Wings Over Will (old title for a previous incarnation of this book--not so sure it works any more)
- Chasing the Wind (several other books with this title, though no YA's)
- Counting the Stars (same as the previous)
- Into the Blue (kinda generic, but might work--and fits with the last line in the book)
I'd love to hear your thoughts! Oh, and if you've read the first two books and might be up for some beta reading, lmk??
