My novel, PRETTY PERFECT, is currently on submission.
Query for PRETTY PERFECT:
Eighteen-year old June Bell has been gunning to win The Miss Friendly Pageant since she was old enough to do the wave-and-cry. Expertly groomed by her mother, who won the pageant as a teen and now happens to be the pageant director, June understands what it takes to be a winner. She must be perfect in every way.
But as more and more contestants are hurt in what appear to be strange and coincidental accidents, June’s airtight plan to win the crown is slipping away. Wary of June’s ambitions, the other contestants believe she’s to blame for the attacks. Worse yet, even her best friends worry June’s pageant motives have turned sinister. With the whole town turning against her, June seeks solace in swoony, confident Casey, the cute boy from the next town over. He’s an oasis from the pageant madness, a place where she can let her guard down.
With the pageant days away, tensions mount and friendships are tested. June must figure out a way to salvage her reputation or lose the crown she’s fought so hard to win.
Full of laugh-out-loud humor, southern charm and enough who-done-it to keep you guessing, PRETTY PERFECT is a YA dark comedy that’s a southern fried Drop Dead Gorgeous.
