Also, don't revise with every rejection you get. I did that with my first book - I got helpful feedback with 10 full rejections and after each one I would revise with their comments. By the end, I didn't feel like it was my book anymore. Don't revise unless you agree with what they said. Writing is so subjective!
(I put my personal line or about the agent here)
I hope that you will have an interest in THE CHAOS SHELTER, a 49,000-word middle grade adventure with series potential.
“Almost thirteen-year-old” Becker Mullins’ wish list is small – keep his family alive and see the sun again. It doesn't shine in the windowless bomb shelter he hides in with his mom and little sister, or at night when he sneaks out to scour an abandoned and violent Seattle for food to steal.
When Beck finds a key to a hidden storeroom and uses his five-finger discount to get as much food as his starved, skinny body can carry, he runs away with new friends, food, and a healthy dose of Vitamin D straight from the sun. But stealing from the wrong person has a price and soon there’s a reward out for his capture by the city’s crime lord. Beck is now the hunted. Little does he know that his quest to survive will change him – and the chaotic city of Seattle – forever.
THE CHAOS SHELTER is a fast paced, action-packed adventure that will appeal to fans of The Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I am a school librarian for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade and an active member of SCBWI. If you would like to read THE CHAOS SHELTER, please let me know and I would be happy to send it. Thank you for your time and consideration.
