NICE YOUNG AGENT

Standard

Got a little nervous when I read an interview with the very nice young agent to whom I plan to bring cookies. He is seeking a rather esoteric list of YA novels: A thriller set inside a water balloon, a mystery loosely based on an episode of Gerald McBoing Boing*, and a Romance novel that turns the New School of Literary Criticism on its head. Ok, none of that’s true, but you get the idea. Anyway, I checked his agency’s website, and it seems that what they actually publish is pretty darn commercial. Ah, youth.

*Raise your hand if you remember Gerald McBoing Boing. Now, put your hand down young agent to whom I plan to bring cookies. Your mother probably doesn’t remember Gerald McBoing Boing.
