Dear Ms. Resciniti:
In sixteen-year-old Brina’s integrated high school, everyone has their place. Humans hang out with humans. Pixies hang out with pixies. And human-pixie hybrid Brina hangs out by herself.
Though humans and pixies generally get along, Brina’s unique heritage is scorned by everyone: from the human pixie-dust addicts she refuses to supply, to the tabloids that have made her infamous nationwide. Brina has accepted that she’ll never blend in. Mostly. But when she’s cast as the weirdo Puck in her school play, Ethan, the charming Midsummer ass, makes her wish that things could be different.
Then pixie-dust traffickers steal her dust and Brina discovers that she’s even stranger – and can make more pixie dust – than anyone suspected. Worse, her startling new abilities herald the end of a vital supernatural secret and open a window of opportunity for a group of ruthless rebels.
Brina just wants to understand who and what she is . . . but the answer will rock the foundations of two races.
I enjoyed your interview on Jamie Ayres’ blog and I love that you’re willing to take your time to help fledgling writers with their queries. I believe that Fans of WINGS by Aprilynne Pike will enjoy the blending of the real and the supernatural in DUSTED, a young adult urban fantasy set in modern day San Antonio. It is complete at 97,000 words.
I’m a third-generation theatre geek with seven years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, where I’ve learned about the drug trade directly from traffickers and addicts. I’ve published a paper on the juvenile death penalty, but this is my first novel. The death penalty paper was easier.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
