Mary Kole's Agent Pitch Contest - Market My Words

For those of you who haven't heard about this fantastic contest on Market My Words, I thought I would give you a heads-up. The contest allows you to submit a 140 character "pitch" for your MG or YA novel (or select picture books if you think they meet Mary Kole's requirements as listed on the site). The prize - a query critique by Mary Kole, associate agent at Andrea Brown Literary Agency, Inc. Deadline - Sunday 22nd, noon EST.

The best thing is, you can enter even if your book is still a work in progress.

I've entered my "pitch" for the Young Adult novel I am currently writing, and I thought I would share it below:
Title: From The Other Side

Genre: YA Paranormal

Misfit Verity is murdered by the boy she loves and awakens with strange powers, uncontrollable rages, and an unquenchable desire for revenge
Wish me luck!
