    Question about giving feedback on a MG manuscript


    Are there differences in the style of description, character, sentence length, paragraph length, complexity, etc that a person should strive for in MG compared to adult?

    I know the answer must be yes, but I guess what I'm hoping for is a little clarity on how to adjust my beta feedback for a MG manuscript. I mostly read adult, and I'm worried my feedback will be toward more complexity in the storyline and so on. I worry that I will give feedback that is not appropriate for a MG novel. But, I also know that kids are smart.

    So I think I stand a good chance of screwing up this beta feedback in one way or another!

    I'm hoping you all can give me some pointers on the sorts of differences you'd expect from a beta reader on a MG manuscript compared to an adult one.
