Thank you all so much for helping me out! I just joined this site a little while ago and I've been really enjoying getting to know you all! I don't know any writers in "real life" and it's so amazing to find such a supportive community online
All feedback is greatly appreciated -don't hold back! I'm trying really hard to thicken my skin in preparation for sending queries to agents.
When the rain starts, it’s simply an annoyance.
But then it doesn’t stop.
Seventeen-year-old Simon Myers is sure of two things: he’s not gay and the world is not ending.
He just happens to spend a lot of time studying the muscles of his childhood friend, star quarterback, Jay Griffon.
And it just happens to be raining. Every single days for weeks.
As the downpour continues, the complaints and jokes about the weather begin to morph into whispers of fear. Simon’s school closes. The grocery store on his street is broken into. A man is shot in broad daylight and the police are nowhere to be found. The electricity goes out. The water gets higher.
Simon doesn’t know if the rumours of a global flood are true, but he does know that there’s no way in hell he’s going to let his family drown. And a kiss from Jay before the end of the world might be nice too.
THE SKY SHATTERS is an LGBT young-adult speculative novel, complete at 77,000 words. It will appeal to fans of Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not and Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
