Let's share intentionally bad book descriptions!

Just for fun: Take a book you’ve read, and describe it (without spoilers) in the shortest, most uninspiring way possible. Misleading (while still true) is even better.

Examples:
人間椅子:
Man finds a chair he made so comfortable, he never leaves it.

コンビニ人間:
Woman’s family disapproves of her dream job.
