Default New Verse Novel Plot! Give me CC!

All right, I'm going to go out there and do something WAY different:
a verse novel based off of historical fiction.
Yes, I said it.
I'm going to be doing a first-person, present-tense verse novel from the perspective of one of the Donner girls. As in the Donner Party... Expansionist era... The covered wagon party that got stranded on the mountain pass and had to resort to cannibalism or starvation.
What do you think?
I don't have any specifics (still in the research phase) besides that except for: it's going to be one of those explosion-first-scene novels. The opening pages will be about how cold it is and her finally being offered an arm of one of the dead people. She's starving and is deciding whether or not to take it. She then goes back and thinks about how she got there, and the story tells her story from when her parents decided to go out west until then. Once we're back in the present, I'll tell the story of how she eventually gets out of the situation- whether it's death or rescue.
What do you think?
