I'm looking for a beta for my YA suspense novel (35K)

Here's a blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Milly has a big problem--Amelia Norris. Day in and day out, Amelia torments poor Milly and even threatens to hurt her. Why? Because Milly and Amelia Norris are one and the same person, two personalities in one body.

Struggling with her mental illness, Milly disconnects both from her past and the world around her. When she and Grandpa George move into Aunt Rachel's Victorian home, Milly begins to reconstruct what truly happened in her parent's death. With her journaling, she tries to collect scattered memories, all the while coping with Amelia, her inner demon.

I have had some experience in a mental hospital, as an assistant. I dealt mostly with girls who had eating disorders and some depressives. So, I think I can help with the behavior of the mentally ill, but I am not a girl. Let me know if you think I can help.
