A thirty-something, non-grown-up, with a flair for building elaborate lego models and a mean bbq salmon. I adore Lois Lowry, Nancy Farmer, Gabrielle Zevin, C.S. Lewis and anything of nonsense. I've been writing forever, but I've finally harnessed my energy into a middle-grade fiction novel. And now that I'm finished, I'm wondering what the prequel will be.I have managed to get a contract with a publishing company. Thank you all who gave me such awesome criticism on my book.
Elsewhere (Gabrielle Zevin), anything by Kate DiCamillo, the series by N.E.Bode, the Narnia series, Blue Helmet (William Bell), The Compound (S.A.Green), Before I Die (Jenny Downham)...too many to mention.

In a few places, you need to watch your tenses.

I'm enjoying it so far. I just have a few comments regarding technical issues, if that's ok.
Stop writing 'said' when someone asks a question. Use 'asked' or 'inquired'.
The first few paragraphs don't really differentiate who the hero of the story is. How would John know that Jackie was ...
I'm loving it. I'm only on Chapter three because I haven't had time to read it all, but I'm loving it.
The only thing bothering me is their dialect. I don't know if it's necessary to put it in that way to make it harder to understand? But that's just me.
I love it.
