I’m so excited to introduce you guys to my new client, Julia Lynn Rubin whose LGBTQ YA manuscript I fell in love with the minute I read the query. It’s a young adult gritty tale about best friends who come to terms with who they are in their California town and who they can be if they ever escape.
It’s a modern The Perks of Being a Wallflower meets The Outsiders with a raw and honest depiction of life as a high school sophomore in a town that is as vivid a character as the main characters, Jesse and Jack. I can talk about this book for hours and find nuances I’d missed on the back-to-back reads I did of the manuscript.
