She represents YA books by talented clients such as Rin Chupeco, Jen Anckorn, Ryan Bradford, Sarah Nicolas, Jen Estes, Kenny Logan, and more.

What she is looking for: Rebecca is interested exclusively in Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction; particularly books about complex female relationships, beautifully written contemporary, romance with more at stake than "will they/won't they," genre fiction with a strong focus on character, books featuring marginalized voices and cultures, and LGBTQIA stories across all genres.

How to submit: Rebecca prefers email submissions consisting of a query letter and the first three chapters, and unfortunately is only able to respond to queries she is interested in pursuing. You can contact her at Rebecca@reesagency.com
