Sensitivity Reader for Middle Grade Kids’ Book
Hello, I’m currently looking for sensitivity readers for my middle grade spy adventure, written with 9-12 year olds in mind. I apologize that I am not currently able to pay for your time if you should decide to help.
I live on 30 acres in the middle of nowhere, and the closest town does not have a mosque or Muslim community that I can find. And Google searches only go so far. I am grateful for anyone who would be willing to read all OR parts of my kids’ book.
Note: The book’s main character is a twelve year old boy, and most of the plot revolves around him. But his best friend is a Muslim American girl, who is actually a spy helping a secret US agency take down a villain who wants to ban Muslims from America.
This is an adventure story, and the focus of the book is not on religion, but I want to make sure any portrayals of Islam are accurate.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
Unable to afford payment at this time.
