I have a YA novel that, I think, may have a sort of "icky" description, though it's not an icky book by any means. I worry that when I boil it down to a short description, it loses the story's appeal and looks like a book about what some may think is an uncomfortable subject. Any advice about how to "spin" (for lack of a better word) the story so that it might not seem controversial or off-putting?

Thanks

Post your query letter in the Share Your Work forum, and let us know precisely what is troubling you. It's hard to know how to spin something if you can't see what needs help. ;)

And welcome, by the way.
