Okay, so I didn't quite make it to 100 words. Pretty close, though, and the end result is a lot cleaner and simpler. I definitely have this article to thank--that example really spurred me on. Tia still beat me, though! 99 words--talk about rising to the challenge!
Feel free to leave any constructive criticism. I think it's pretty close to done, but I'm sure I'll be tweaking it all weekend.
For Haley Malloy, the approaching summer should be all about boys, bikinis, and the beach. But when she and her little sister are invited to attend the Praesentia Summer Academy, where teenagers with genetically-bestowed superpowers learn how to use them, the bikinis and the beach get thrown out the window.
There will be no shortage of boys, though, as the powers are usually passed down to males. Despite her misgivings, Haley agrees to go.
She has no idea that before the summer's over, she'll fall in love, suffer her sister's betrayal, and be called upon to save the entire Academy from one of its own.
Something about the last sentence seems...abrupt, I guess. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
