Morning, all you web warriors. We've got the query of a really cool lady up today: Jessica Salyer. Do you know Jessica? She's great. She runs a writing and pulbishing blog at Just Following a Dream, which, ahem, I happen to have been a guest poster at before.
Anyway, here's her query:
Dear Awesome Agent,
Emma Potter believes she’s an average seventeen-year-old girl until an uneventful road trip becomes anything but when a truck blows a tire and slides into her parent’s lane. A collision is inevitable, but the truck flies over the car, leaving it completely unscathed.
Within twenty-four hours, Emma is whisked onto a plane and shuttled halfway across the country to her new home, Potter Valley. She’s required to attend a high school for students with ‘special powers’ like hers, known as Guardians. Countless secrets are revealed, none more troublesome then the prophecy, which dictates that once the three founding Guardian families are reunited, a war will break out. More importantly, the side Emma chooses will win.
Thrust into a world she didn’t know existed, the cause of a war she didn’t fully understand, how can Emma choose which side to fight for? And once the choice is made, how can she defend herself with a power she knows not how to wield, against those who have trained for this confrontation their whole lives.
