Joe sighed when he saw the beer can. He often told his employers he needed a separate bag for recyclables, but they claimed his job required him only to rake leaves and carry away branches.
However, he had brought a bag from home, just in case, so he picked up the can and tossed it in. To his surprise, a genie jumped out of his green garbage bag and offered him, not three wishes, but journeys to three galaxies of his choice. In his excitement, Joe immediately named three, forgetting to make the Milky Way his third choice.
Although he was thus never able to return to Earth, Joe never regretted his three choices.
In Name Three, author Bode Mayall takes Joe where no human has gone before, and keeps readers glued to their books every light-year of the way.

The goal of this meme is to:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
Every Thursday Lisa Ricard Claro of Writing in the Buff will post a photo that we'll pretend is the cover of a book, along with her own blurb. We are invited to post the photo on our sites along with our own 150 words-or-less blurbs, then leave our links on her blog, for entry in Book Blurb Friday.
