Coming-of-Age, 89k

Update: I am now deliberating between two offers of representation (30 June) and am very sorry to report Caryn is not among them. She is a careful agent who takes the time to really read the material she requests and all subsequent communications with her were personal and encouraging. I wish only the best for her and her clients.
