Trailer Time: A Quick Hit

Take a quick peek at this week’s trailer:

A girl tells us she’s determined to leave her world, despite the lack of precedence, because she values the truth and that’s the one thing her world lacks.  Her actions will change everything.

That’s all we know.

It’s a tease, not a sales pitch.  And that’s fine.  However, the tease relies, in part, on the assertion that David Baldacci is a master storyteller.  No evidence is given to support this claim.  Since I don’t know who he is or what he’s written, that seems like a problem to me.

But the real question is this:  Are you intrigued enough to look for more information?

More importantly is this one:  What would you do differently?

    I’ve read some of David Baldacci’s work and wasn’t all that impressed – i.e. he’s not one of my favourite authors – but I do know him so this teaser made sense to me. I suspect it’s aimed more at existing readers than at new ones. That said, I found the basic premise of the story quite interesting, but the hint of YA would probably stop me wanting to learn more. Then again! If the story is aimed at the YA market then it works… Gah.

    • Maybe it’s the fact that I’m trying to raise three teenagers (with one pre-teen), but I’m finding the world of teenagers rather compelling right now. Maybe, though, it’s the fact that as dire and world-ending as a teenager’s problems seem at the time (and usually are in fantasy/science fiction teen dramas), they seem so much more manageable than many of the problems I’m dealing with right now.
