10- YA Fantasy and I do love this genre but I like a little romance with my fantasy too. This doesn't feel original enough #tenqueries
8- YA thriller, but this feels way older than YA. Know your genre, know your voice. Pass #tenqueries
7- YA, but again, it feels like middle grade. Voice doesn't feel authentic. Pass #tenqueries
5- Maybe it's historical fiction, I'm not sure. I don't get it. Pass #tenqueries
3- NA Contemp, Word count is WAY too long pages didn't draw me in. Pass. #tenqueries
#3 Author says this is YA but feels more like Middle Grade, which we don't represent. Do your research, know your genre.
#2 YA Thriller, I liked the premise but writing just not strong enough. Pass.
#1, NA, I didn't love the query but I always read the pages. Writing not bad but feels like it started in the wrong place. I'm lost. Pass
