I am working on my first novel, and I think it has great potential! It is written for kids, but can be greatly enjoyed by adults (like Narnia and Harry Potter).
Right now my main character is a girl, age 13. I would like your opinion on what age you would prefer to see her. At first I thought, "Would adults really like to read a book about a 13 year old?" Then I realized that I, (along with millions of others), greatly enjoy Harry Potter, who at the beginning of the series is a mere 11 years old.
The books is set in Greece, and is somewhat of an adventure novel. She meets a boy that is a friend-only a friend- not a love interest in anyway. The reason I am telling you this is because she does not necessarily have to be older, (if love was involved, then age would really matter).
So what age would you prefer her to be- 13, 16, or do you have another suggestion? My poll is on the top right of my blog and will close the evening of June 18.
Thanks! ♥ TK
