Re: YA fantasy/love story - THEM (working title)

You've given me a lot of food for thought. My sister (18 years old) has been reading and adding input through the entire process and I've asked her to go back through the novel and essentially add/change what you have mentioned with the voice. I'm a big enough girl to admit that I'm a bit detached b...
