Hey guys! I’m trying to write a query letter for A Caregiver’s Last Lesson and I’m working on getting the first paragraph down. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this.
For as he can remember, Will has wanted to be recognized as a true citizen of his government, a privilege that would give him the right to be politically active, receive consistent wages, and marry. However, Will has been told that all these possibilities can be taken away from him if he is assigned to be a lab rat after he leaves the orphanage he’s grown up in. To ensure that he is never assigned to be a lab rat, Will has trained diligently so that he can impress the judges and secure his dream. He even decides to break the rules of his orphanage just to tip the odds in his favor, only to learn that he’s been lied to all his life.
