@downeynl: You’re welcome and yeah, it seemed like that was a big one. I think a bit more could be added as well, which goes with the idea of an adult novel (longer WC and whatnot). So yeah, I’ve been thinking of tweaking it more, add more to the beginning and throughout and hopefully it’ll be suitable length for Adult. I figure it doesn’t hurt to try and query it that way, but I think I have to add more first. It’s way too short as it is, unless YA.

I think you can do home schooling and make it a high school feel. The agent I queried didn’t seem to mind the not in a traditional high school thing, but rather that the characters seemed past the coming of age part of life. I really didn’t agree, but what can you do? I guess it’s just a different part of growing up and too adult for YA.
