I was watching the Try Guys the other week and their video of celebrating their four-year anniversary by playing a game where they pick a slip of paper with titles of videos they made and try to explain it to their partners in four words in four seconds. I thought that would be fun to apply to books, so here we are.
Because I don’t make videos or write books, I’m using a list of books that I’ve read. I wrote down a whole bunch of (hopefully) well-known YA books and selected 15 of them to try and make a summary in four words (or less).
The two rules I have are:
- I’m not allowed to use any words in the book title
- I’m not allowed to use any character names.
If you want to play along, you can try and guess what book I’m talking about after reading my short summary and then click the drop down to reveal the title. For the most part, if a book is part of a series, I used the first book just so there would be less spoilers.
