Hi Frank,

Freshman aren't really middle graders. Middle grade readers, the real kids, are ages 8-12. Your characters may be too old for MG. Also, my ten year old has no interest in reading romance. Your themes are reading a bit YA to me. Books with 14 yo main chars are hard to sell because they are too old for MG but young for YA readers who don't want to read about kids two years younger than themselves. (I'm assuming high school freshman.)
