Dear Agent of my Dreams,
# #butter ‘em up stuff about why I chose them and why I thought they’d like my book ## and thought you might be interested in CHASING THE TAILLIGHTS, an 87 000 word contemporary YA novel told in alternating perspectives.
Lucy and Tony share nothing except their genetic code and a love of rock music. Tony’s the driven high achiever, the champion diver destined for greatness. Lucy’s biggest concern is getting the cute guy from the burger joint to ask her out.
When a car accident kills their parents, Lucy and Tony are forced to rely on one another--and decide whether to reveal their secrets. Tony has a crush on Jake, his best friend, while what Lucy knows about the accident is so devastating it sends her into a spiral of self-destruction.
As the siblings struggle to overcome a lifetime of past conflicts and jealousies, they discover they might have more in common than they ever thought.
