Suzette Saxton (SuzetteSaxton on QT) has signed with agent Brendan Deneen of .
[Something specific about the agent here.] I am seeking representation for SECRET SISTERS, my 39,000 word contemporary middle grade novel.
Eleven-year-old Hallie Finch never believed the late-night noises coming from behind her bedroom wall were cockroaches. Now she knows a girl named Senna is imprisoned in the motel room next door... but no one believes her. Especially not her workaholic, southern-fried Momma, who leaves Hallie alone every night to waitress at the Cha Cha Resort.
Before she can think of freeing Senna, Hallie must deal with her own crap:
A friendboy she wishes was a boyfriend.
A father who’s not her real father.
A chance at winning a million bucks on TV’s Talented America.
Then Hallie learns the motel in which she lives is scheduled for demolition tomorrow at dawn. With Senna still trapped inside it, Hallie must choose between winning the million, which would set things right with Momma, and saving her secret friend. But Senna has secrets of her own, secrets that Hallie might not be able to deal with.
I’m an author of the QueryTracker Blog for aspiring authors. My short story, The Bone Setter, appeared in Mindflights Magazine’s online e-zine and in their Issue 3 print anthology. If you would like to consider SECRET SISTERS, I’d be happy to forward the complete manuscript to you.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
