Some are not so good.
In fact, they're bad.
Okay, they're terrible. Really, really terrible.
Today we're pitching our very worst story ideas to you. Some of us actually started to write the things you're about to read before realizing what we were doing was a horrible idea . Don't judge us. (Well, actually, do judge us, but we'll get to that later.)
First up is Natalie Whipple,
Sixteen-year-old Lily Martel can't live without her earphones and endless hours of music, because when she's not listening to songs all she can hear is the whispering of plants around her. Her worst nightmare comes true when her mother sends her away from New York to live on her father's Napa Valley vineyard for the summer, where she is so surrounded by plants she's sure she'll go nuts listening to all their chatter she can't reply to. But as she settles in, she realizes there's another voice on the air who can talk to the foliage and her as well. Not only that, the plants seem to know things that could put her father's vineyard at risk. Can Lily figure out who the mysterious voice is AND save her dad's business without looking insane? Only the plants can tell.
When Sophie's archaeologist parents force the family to spend the summer on a dig in Egypt, the last thing she thinks they'll come home with is an ancient disease that makes them faster, fiercer, and slowly depletes their bodies while giving them a monster-sized craving for brains. When the disease starts spreading to other areas of the country, Sophie's family must find out who is spreading it and stop them while striving against the clock to find a cure. When it comes to zombies, the family that slays together, stays together.
Now comes the judgment. In the comments below, tell us who you think had the worst idea. Everyone who votes will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of one of our books from the writer with the winning (or is it losing?) pitch.
ETA: We have a winner!
