Hi everyone! Please help me with my genre question.

I wrote a novel that involves a "re-telling" of Job 41 (God's description of Leviathan). In this case, Leviathan is in the form of a boy who falls in love with a girl (because of course he does). But here's the thing: I am not religious and the story, while consistent with and respectful of a religious outlook, is not primarily a religious book. It is a book about the nature of knowledge and scientific inquiry.

Here is a query I worked up for it:

Callum Jonah Cole doesn’t know what he is, but he’s pretty sure he’s not Leviathan. Not when his name means Dove Dove and he wouldn’t hurt a fly.

And if he is Leviathan, then that part about him being a “creature without fear” is b.s. Because he’s downright terrified of Tiger Mouse, a.k.a. Queen of Colors, a.k.a. Ella Patrick. She pierces his skull with a hook and drags him around wherever she pleases. And that’s just by singing to him, which she’s done ever since she found him in the barn nine years ago.

It was one thing when she just worked him over with cream eggs and kittens and Dr. Seuss. But then she dressed him up in every single one of Newton’s Laws and made him walk around like that until he could actually pass for human.

Well, almost human.

Because on the eve of their Senior year, his flesh was still as hard as millstone and he still couldn’t kneel without scarring the earth. But Ella had a plan to fix that, too.
Had Callum not snuck off to meet that seer, he might not have ended up behind an abandoned gas station, bound and bartered for sport. All he wanted to know from the fortune teller was if Ella would ever love him. Was that too much to ask? But instead what he got was a lesson: that just because you get the truth, it doesn’t mean you should believe it.
