Jolie Futé has always been a smart, practical girl, but when a strange man walks into Blue's Diner with stories about a mysterious creature living in the swamp, her curiosity gets the better of her. Jolie starts to feel an unexpected, desperate need to go into the swamp and see for herself. 

She has never believed in fairytales. Still, she begins to wonder... could the rumors be true? Could there really be a half-crocodile, half-human monster lurking in the bayou. Jolie will go against everything she believes to find out, and what she discovers will change her world forever.

Ooh! I really love how unique and different this setting is! This gets me excited to get deeper into the story, tbh! Different setting could mean a totally new take on a classic fairytale 😉
I am almost imagining Jolie as a woman of African American descent and I kinda like it! It makes sense since the story takes place in Louisiana

Smack-in-the-middle-of-nowhere Special, Louisiana. (Just an idea that struck me as being both funny and useful.

I would replace this by "where" to eliminate the repetition 😊

As soon as I saw the word swamp in the description I thought of Shrek,,, lol anyways I'm thinking this is a modern-something where you'd have half crocodile people (fantasy? Sci-fi?) kind of fairytale soooooo I'm gonna read it cause I love modern fairytales.

This part is yet another proof of your storytelling talent (if more proofs were really needed 😉)! And, BTW, your dialogues are just amazing in this! I can hear the accent so clearly in my head. Amazing job with that 👌
