Q2: MG. I can tell from the query I am not going to be a fit for this. Took a look at sample and the voices sounds more contemporary than I would like.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 20 Jan 2018

Q1: YA romance. Alternating timelines. -_- The writing wasn't capturing me and the query didn't compel me. Pass.
