Synopsis Rewrite

For this challenge, all you have to do is rewrite the synopsis of a book from another character’s point of view. Make it their story instead. If you post on social media, be sure to use #synopsisrewritebob20 to share.

My Rewrite ( Skybreaker by Kenneth Oppel):

My name is Matt Cruse I am currently attending the Airship Academy in Paris. While travelling through a storm in the Indian Ocean, my training vessel comes upon the Hyperion, a long-lost ship said to be carrying great riches.  The captain of this training ship almost killed us all by trying to go after the Hyperion.  I took matter into my own hands against captains orders and had the ship descend.  I return back to Paris where I have a nasty run in with pirates who want the coordinates of the Hyperion’s last known where-abouts.  I also me a mysterious girl who says that she would like to go after the Hyperion with me and split the treasure.  I go to see Kate de Vries,  my very close friend and possibly more to help me figure out what to do. This is were my story takes off I go to find the Hyperion with Kate and other companions and we encounter more danger, more creatures and I may even have in counter a new love interest.  Well you will just have to read my story to find out how it all turns out!
