The first female cadet at Norton Military Institute knew plebe year would be a challenge, but she never figured it would include surviving a kidnapping during which she’s very nearly murdered and then putting her life on the line to thwart an assassination plot by Cuban-Americans outraged by the President’s initiative to normalize relations with Cuba.
I think the entire fact that she is a first year is not needed.
A military cadet must escape her captors and prevent them from assassinating the President of the United States.
Cuba may be a huge part of your story so add that in.
A military cadet must escape her Cuban-American captors and prevent them from assassinating the President of the United States.
You will want to make it as quick and punchy as possible as it is an action story at heart. Everything else save for the Synopsis.
