A note on queries for urban fantasy novels whether for middle grade, young adult or adult readers...
Urban fantasy is "our world + magic." Be clear in your query - do the humans (muggles/ normals/ whatever) KNOW that there is magic? Or, is magic a secret.
WEAK character development in a pitch = "Two girls who are kids just like any other kid."
STRONG character development in a pitch = "Two girls with powers in a land that has lost its magic."
