I've been working on this project for a few years now, this is my fifth revision of the query. I appreciate any and all critiques. Thank you!
I’m seeking representation for my 88,000 young adult fiction, AGENT LINCOLN BEGINS. This YA novel set in rural Kansas has a mixture of adventure, friendship, rivalries and with a romantic angle.
Fifteen-year-old Penny Lincoln an orphan and farmhand is contracted to join a secret spy school in rural Kansas with her best friend and fellow orphan, Declan.
Penny is taught different languages; disguises, technology gadgets and her favorite class combat skills, which she excels. As her friends develop crushes Penny sits back and watches until intriguing (and attractive) fellow classmate Warren starts inserting himself into her life. It’s making it hard for Penny to resist him when he always seems to be waiting outside her door. As her friendship with Warren grows; a rivalry between Declan and Warren forms. Penny is stuck between Declan, a boy she’s known as her family and Warren, a boy who has taken a fondness to her.
Nearing the end of freshman year the class partakes in their first real life mission. The objective is simple and entails them to bug a Politician. However, during their assignment something goes terribly wrong. Penny and her partner’s cover are compromised and they become trapped in the Politician’s house. Now, she must find a way to escape without putting any more of her teammates at risk.
AGENT LINCOLN BEGINS is a stand-alone with series potential.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
