Read the title. Pick a book (it can be your own) and boil the plot down to one sentence. Do not give a play-by-play of events. You can only say the bare minimum. And absolutely no flaming somebody if they take a book you don't like.

I'll start:

Swan Kingdom: Girl must save world from an evil witch that wants to suck the life out of the kingdom.
A writer is a world trapped in a person— Victor Hugo
