Pitch Wars Boost My Bio 2019

Hi, I'm Theresa. I write MG and YA, both contemporary and contemporary. This year, for Pitch Wars, I'm submitting a YA contemporary that deals with a parent with a mental disorder and ...


YA Contemporary: UNSTITCHING SLOANE

Pitch:
When her dad takes off, seventeen-year-old Sloane must abandon her dream of going to design school or risk her younger sister’s safety in order to keep her unstable mom from unraveling altogether.

Summary:
Seventeen-year-old goth girl, Sloane Walsh, dreams of becoming a fashion designer and plans to score a scholarship to a design school and escape her hell home. But Dad ditches his responsibilities when he takes a job transfer, leaving Sloane to care for her erratically-behaved, mentally-ill mother and protect her sister from her mother’s abuse. No way she can bail now. With her dreams in jeopardy, she searches for a new plan. To cope with the mounting responsibilities, she pours her feelings into her Creative Writing Club journal.

In the Club, is, of all people, her school’s star quarterback. Turns out he isn’t a typical dumb jock. But freaks don’t like football players and football players don’t like freaks. One night, she catches a ride from him. They wind up connecting in ways she couldn’t have imagined. He’s scored a football scholarship to a school on the other side of the country, and she clutches to the fantasy of escaping there too. But they have no relationship outside of his R8 Spyder. As Sloane’s feelings for him grow, she realizes she can’t be anyone’s secret. She’s got too many of her own.

Her biggest secret is her mother. As Mom’s attacks escalate and conditions at home deteriorate, Sloane has to decide if she can continue taking the physical and mental abuse and allow her mother’s needs eclipse her own.

  3. Wow, this sounds intriguing. And relatable, sadly; so many teens today wind up being forced into caretaker roles because of mental illness, the opioid epidemic, or the general economic dislocation of American life these days. We connected a few years back and I'm really glad to see you're still putting awesome writing out there.

  6. I’ve seen some blogs that are ridiculously slow. I mean a sidebar filled to the brim, flashing images, full blog posts on the homepage (as opposed to excerpts), millions of GIFs… all those things slow down a blog. They make it take longer to scroll down because it’s lagging, and it could even make an older computer crash/freeze completely. I’ll love your blog if it’s simple, elegant, and quick to load.

  7. I've been seeing posts and testimonials about BLANK ATM CARD but I never believed it, not until I tried it myself. It was on the 12th day of March. I was reading a post about places to visit in Slovakia when I saw this captivating post about how a Man described as Mr John changed his life with the help of a Blank Atm Card. I didn't believe it at first until I decided to reach him through the mail address attached to the post. To my greatest imagination, it was real. Right now am living up to a standard I never used to live before. Today might be your lucky day! Reach Mr Thomas via email:(thomassiguard522@gmail.com) see you on the brighter side of life.you can also contect him via WhatsApp:+17733492820
