99. MG Realistic. Pitch focuses on the main character being bullied at school. Which is very common in MG stories. #100Queries

96. MG Adventure. This is one of those times when too many ideas are smooshed into one story. #100Queries

93. Picture Book. No pitch. Query goes over the inspiration behind the book, but not what the book is about. #100Queries

92. Literary Fiction. Pitch focuses on all the things it is not, which doesn’t help me understand the premise of the book. #100Queries

90. YA Fantasy. Pitch is really short (three sentences) and doesn’t even hint at what makes it different from other books. #100Queries

89. YA Contemporary. This pitch doesn’t give enough information. It sets up the characters ok, but doesn’t go any futher. #100Queries

86. MG Magical Realism. I really love this premise! Some unusual things going on here. #100Queries
Replying to @msmariavicente

I’m hesitant about an aspect of the story, but I’ll request pages anyway and test it out because the premise is really unusual. #100Queries

85. YA Fantasy. The premise just doesn’t sound like something I’d read. I think I’m particularly picky with fantasy concepts. #100Queries
