First line: Rain could hear the drums as she raced past me.

This story is set in the Ghost Keys and the main character is a little girl. We were glad to see a map. If you've been following this blog, you know we love maps.

Our reader could not get past this sentence on page one: "She didn't notice my companion or myself, but every other downbeat, she'd look back over her shoulder." Where's the editor? This is a book vfor young adults. Get the grammar right!! You would not say "She didn't notice myself," you say "She didn't notice ME!!!"
