I'm attempting to participate in Steena Holmes' logline blogfest at Chocolate Reality. A logline is basically a hook, an elevator pitch, the most important two sentences from a query. So here's my very first attempt at my young middle grade novel, Gleek, that I haven't even started writing yet (my hope is that it will inspire me to start writing it):
Gleek loves to eat, but nobody can tell by looking at him because he's as picky and skinny as his three pet snakes. Gleek enters the science fair with a strange food experiment that requires creativity and lots of math. But when he learns that Matso, the school mathematician who loves to eat and everybody can tell by looking at him, is entering too, Gleek has to find a way to make sure his experiment won't disappear before the judges get to his table. If Gleek doesn't win the science fair, then he loses out on his only chance to go to Snakes Alive Camp.
First attempt. Any suggestions?
