In his own words: Hey Mindi,

Looks good – lots of potential as a coming of age novel for boys here (a la Looking for Alaska). And there are some editors out there really looking for YA with a strong male voice. Perhaps I can have a two-week exclusive look at this?

Best, and keep me posted,

[Male Agent]

Never have I been so pleased to receive a request for an exclusive!

Now I have to just, you know, finish writing the thing.
