Back of the Book Blurb #46 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)


Private School

Tom decided that he didn’t want to teach in public school any more. He was tired of the hassles in public school and wanted to give private school a try. Tom heard of a private school that paid a lot to teachers who worked there but those teachers never talked about their job. He wondered if they took a confidentiality oath when they worked there. He heard it was a unique school and everyone who worked there or went there were very happy. Students who graduated went on to Ivy League universities. When they offered him the job, he took it without thinking about it. After he signed the contract, the principal pulled out a box that was full of money! Then the principal told him what was expected of him. Read more to find out what duties Tom would have and how much money he would make doing them. (150 words)

Pat--Where is school? I want to apply. :)

You know there's that popular saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't." A whole suitcase full of money to teach? There must be a catch...

Sounds like Tom is in for a rude awakening!
