*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.

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

Good start! A few grammatical errors, but I'm a big fan of training-gone-wrong scenarios like Quantico or even parts of Divergent.
