Six Word Summary

Sometimes it pays to be brief.

So, let’s see how many of my writing/blogging friends can summarize one of their works in six words!

The rules are: The summary sentence has to have a subject and a predicate and (of course) exactly six words in it.

I’ll start you off with a few.

WE HEAR THE DEAD:
Prank traps sisters in deceitful life.
THE CAGED GRAVES:
Family secrets blight betrothed girl’s future.
And my short story NECROMANCER:
Loving a bereaved widower proves dangerous

Now it’s your turn! Can you squeeze your premise down to six succinct words?
