Also a teen, found this through Meg Cabot's site (I think)...
Been switching between a classic Horror Novel (which I've been working on since I was 12... kinda) and a psychological horror.... called, "Blind Intuition" where the premise is that the whole world may or may not be run by the feelings that people pick up on (called intuition) and whether or not whatever is sending out those feelings is thinking in the world's best interest.
You seem like a real sweetheart... it's great to know that there's this many teens out here...lol
Your book sounds lovely... I could definitely see myself picking it up in a bookstore.
