Dear Pitch2Pub Agents,
I am pleased to have this opportunity to submit NATASHA’S WAR. This YA historical fiction transports you to World War II Russia and in a way never before done in an American book. It draws from first-person accounts from two dozen of the nearly one million Russian girls who served in World War II combat; Natasha’s story is told from their distinctively Soviet point of view.
In THE CERITH FLOWER, a misfit’s suicidal quest to save a friend from deadly hunters drives her to question old familiar bonds and trust new dangerous ones—all while coming face to face with a reality she'd rather escape.
Thank you for participating in Pitch to Publication 2016.
