Haha, thanks! In Sicily, I heard I'm a strawberry :D
Anyway, I’ve posted the new version of my query so I would be happy to get your feedback :)
;) Thank you! You're a peach! If only I had a peach emoji!
Ok, and as promised here's my feedback:
Note: Every time I change this... I change it A LOT. Urf. Is it just me, or is this harder than the book itself? It's like a totally different language.
Imaginary friends may be fun when you’re eight, but as Genny Engalls discovers, they’re problematic when you’re seventeen. As I said before it’s a great hook. One question though – are those fantasy or imaginary friends?
Genny hasn’t missed Zxix, her foul-mouthed, dragon like imaginary friend from childhood. So when he reappears years later, demanding her help, it’s not a welcome reunion. All she wants is to fly under the radar at her new school, but that’s going to be hard if she’s losing her grip on reality. Soon, she’s as infamous as schizophrenic classmate Leo Ward.
When Genny realizes she and Leo are hearing the same voices, she will uncover the true nature of their so called imaginary friends. Zxix and his people are Guardians, a race of beings once symbiotic with humanity until a terrible mistake enslaved them for millennia. Now each Guardian is trapped, bonded to a human who unwittingly determines their every move. (I like it, it gives me enough info about the Guardians to keep me interested)
Genny will undertake a mission to deliver Zxix to his ancestral homeland, where he might free his people. But her quest is overshadowed by a growing threat- Leo’s newfound ability to exploit the Guardians for his own gain. He opposes their freedom- and anyone who seeks it- through violence and control.
(I wonder why, what are his motives? And are the Guardians so called imaginary or do they actually exist? I’m not sure if she’s a schizophrenic as well?)
As Genny discovers the possibilities of a world where no one is ever alone, she will struggle to rise above the temptation of power, all the while questioning whether she has the right to make choices that will change the world forever. (I like the ending, but I’m a bit confused. What’s the main focus in your book – schizophrenia or human urges when it comes to power?)
Ok, so I’m intrigued and I think you have an interesting story, good job! The only thing that’s still not clear for me is if you want to explore the mental illness or the world of the Guardians and how it intertwines with ours.
