Behind the Books: Entry Point

A book’s entry point is the place where an author chooses to begin telling a story. For example, in Bomb, Steve Sheinkin uses an en media res approach to engage readers. He presents a fast-paced, intriguing scene in which an American who has been spying against his own country is on the verge of getting caught by the FBI. This thrilling scene sends readers a strong message: If you invest your time in reading this book, you won’t regret it.

Here are two other books with great entry points:

Brave Girl by Michelle Markel

The Hive Detectives by Loree Griffin Burns

Can you think of others? I’m searching for more.
