Hello readers! Today's trailer is for a book with a… confusing summary. The trailer's perfectly fine, nothing as huge as the filmed pieces, but very charming. But on reading the summary after the trailer, I find that it's a bit deeper than expected- take a look yourself:
Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.
Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.
No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.
First order of business: why in the world would a parent allow their child to go off with a father who left them to participate in a motorcycle club? I mean, either the dad was devoted enough to the club that he intentionally left, or the mother divorced him because of ignoring the family. No matter how good that club is, I'd still be a bit unwilling to let my daughter suddenly hang out with daddy after so long. Secondly, how many hardcore motorcycle clubs are in this area? There's the good one with the father, and a bad one who seems like it's willing to hurt people to settle scores. Any choice on police intervention, or are they both types of motorcycle mafias with power over the police? Thirdly, who wants them apart? The dad seems chill with it, at the very least, and we don't really know of anyone else there. Never mind all that, though. The trailer is a neat little video, with a punk/rock/country theme and some nice visuals- though it does make mention of several clubs again (now I'm imagining a Boy Scout style motorcycle club for the delinquents of tomorrow.) Anyway, we'll be riding out to read this on its release of May 26th. See you all on Monday!
