*Old title: The Experiment: Adrift*

One sentence synopsis: Ten strangers board a plane that crashes into the ocean, turning their promised paradise vacation into a deadly experiment of survival.  

Desperate for money and dying for adventure, Avery Heart stands before the notorious job board of Clancy Hall. Known for its outlandish posts she's bound to find something worthwhile.  Buried under rain tattered pages she finds a yellow flyer that would give her exactly what she asked for, and then some. 

Six months later she finds herself boarding a plane with nine strangers who've all been chosen to participate in an experiment called "Hilstead Experiment". All is well aboard the plane until tragedy strikes. Avery watches in horror as the pilot collapses onto the floor and dies. Panic quickly spreads as the plane rushes toward the ocean below. 

What is suppose to be the trip of a life time. Instead it turns into a fight for survival as food and water run out and mother nature takes over.

*Rated R for  language.

Hmm, cover is a bit bland .. could be a bit more engaging. some more colour perhaps? The blurb and pitch sound interesting esp the bit about x-men and Dr Mengele!

Hmmm ... The blurb sounds a lot like the show "Lost". Though, the superpowers and mad scientist sounds interesting.
Sounds really interesting. I can't wait to nosedive right in! Get it? Nosedive! Like a plane... lol

It's a good cover. However, it needs to be a higher pixel count as it's very blurry when looked at up close.
Captivating and crisp - generates a lot of interest. Looking forward to reading it!

First and foremost I've got to say while this paragraph contains no outrageous big words, it's certainly intriguing enough. You're one of those authors blessed with great diction that makes the story just flow even with the simplest words
