My story is about a teen girl hooked on a fictional drug (an illegal anti-depressant.) She's yearning to quit, but is pitted with losing her close friend Nate-- the young man that only exists when she's on the drug.

Right now I have two agents and one editor eager for revisions-- things like tightening, more efficient dialogue and less explaining omitted from the ms. The story is 55K words. I'd like to switch with someone that has that word count, or around that and is YA. I am willing to give light critique and my honest opinions.

IF you're interested, I would love to hear from you. Thanks!

Are you willing to consider a non-switch? (That is, a beta reader who has nothing for you to read in return.)

To answer your question (in case others are wondering) yes, I'd do that too.
