EQ via Query Manager: 9/28 + 3 chapters
FR: 9/29 (commented: "I'm intrigued")
ER: 10/10, stating "Thanks so much for submitting your work. I think you're a talented writer, but I found the girls' slut-shaming and use of LGBT identities for insult to be off-putting."

Here's my thing, one of my characters calls her BFF a "lesbo" and also refers to a boy as "fruity." These comments occur in the first three chapters, which leads me to think Mr. Devine did not read the sample pages accompanying the query, or he would not have requested the full. Also, my MC calls her BFF a slut and also refers to the boy she's hooking up with as a "man whore." Not sure what to think about this new concept of "slut shaming," I didn't set out to write an after school special or teach a lesson with my story. Curiously enough, the antagonist in my story makes racially insensitive comments in the first three chapters (and throughout the book), but there was no mention of this being off-putting in the agent's comments.,,
