View Full Version : Beta for MG contemporary humor

Hi everyone! I'm hoping to find a few betas for a 40k Middle Grade. It's a fun read, lots of humor, very voice-y.

To get a feel for my style, you can see the first 1000 words here: http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=277588

This particular book is stylistically similar to a slightly older Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but thematically more like The Misfits, or Stargirl or Better Nate than Ever, in that there's definitely some moral-y parts to it. (also, there's a gay character, and the book is not too nice to the people who aren't too nice to him.)

I'd love to find a few good critique partners. If we're a good fit, I'd be happy to find people I could continue to swap with.
