MAYBE FOREVER–YA sci-fi:
Keller’s recently-deceased father created the Clocks—devices that predict the exact moment of an individual’s death, but she doesn’t know that. It isn’t until Human Dynamics, the company he once worked for, starts asking about a project he kept secret from his family, that Keller discovers her father was hiding more from her than just the origin of the Clocks.
HD wants that research, and they’ll do almost anything to get it, even kidnapping Keller’s best friend, Tia. As a little nudge of encouragement, they send along Tia’s Clock, proclaiming her death to be approaching—three days, eight hours, four minutes, six seconds. Five, four, three, two, one…
With the help of Sebastian, a cute nerd and a big fan of her father’s work, Keller scrambles to find the research HD is demanding before Tia’s time runs out.
I need feedback on the bigger issues in this novel. I’ve been told the world-building is the biggest area that needs work, so it would be nice if someone could help me figure out how to do that and where. I would also like to know how the romantic aspect is and if it progresses well.

|More About Me||
I am nineteen years old–writer, reader, goof, romantic. I speak ASL, I play piano by ear, I work at a pre-school with 18 three-year-olds, and I was home schooled my whole life (yeah, I’m socially deprived). I want to work with children after college, and I can’t wait to be a mother.
I write YA. I have a plethora of ideas that I hope to get down in readable form in my lifetime, but I know that’s not as possible as I’d like it to be. So I write what I love and get as much as I can done.
