Why can't teachers at school teach us this before failing our butts after a essay we just wrote? Maybe if we were taught how to do it properly like this we wouldn't have failed lmao

These grabbers sound more like click-bait. If you are writing an academic (esp. literary) essay, PLEASE do not use these things! Formal essay writing requires context and thesis statement. The only 'grabber' you need is the contextualisation - from GCSE/A-level right though to university. I can't speak for American colleges, I suppose. Someone might correct me here.

Everyone if you have an essay due and you don't wanna do it (and you know you don't want any essay), hit up Killer Papers. I found them on Instagram, @killerpapers. If you click the link in their bio, it sells one page for 25$ each. They have a whole team, so they can write about literally anything. And the best part is, they're plagiarism free! I swear I'm not their agent.
