The term hook has multiple definitions depending on usage. It can refer to the unique or compelling aspect of a novel or plot, the descriptive information in a query letter, or the individual lines in the text that capture reader interest and make them want to read on. In the most general sense, a hook is something that grabs attention and makes someone want to read or keep reading the novel.
