*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.

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

Not my usual kind of thing but I'm sure it'll be worth it 😄😄

The summary is intriguing, especially the first part though the bottom is a bit out of sequence. But that's probably just me, I'm not your usual sci-fi Reader

Still on that last sentence, I love the amount of suspense you injected there with a few carefully chosen words which hint at what is about to come yet does not give the story away. It keeps the reader at the edge of her seat.

Writing a synopsis let alone a one sentence blurb is like piloting a plane for me- you did a great job!
