Title: HER GOLDEN CRIMES

Word Count: 83,000

Hogwarts House: Though Aurelia wishes she could be a brave Gryffindor, she’s knows her intelligence and wit makes her more of a Ravenclaw. When she dies and learns she’s the reincarnation of the afterlife’s most notorious traitor, she discovers she’s always been a cunning Slytherin at heart.

35 Word Pitch: When a deadly tornado thrusts seventeen-year-old sci-fi geek Aurelia into the afterlife of Ozir, she discovers she’s a traitorous villain’s reincarnation and sentenced to soul destruction—unless she can prove she’s not wickedest of all.

First 250:

I never thought I’d die for something as boring as a glue stick.

“Dude.” I dragged the word out, despite not being a stoner, skater or surfer. If anything, I was a sci-fi geek but we, as a people, didn’t really have an official word. Maybe just a scream of unadulterated joy at the release of a new movie or a shocked gasp at a revelation in a TV episode. But my Duuude was meant to soften the blow that would come next. “We’re gonna have to go outside.”

Kate glanced up at me from the hardwood floor of my bedroom. Her fingers tightened around the paper she held, a baby-blue poster board we were attempting to decorate. “Eww, why?”

I twisted the glue stick in my hand, pushing up the tube of adhesive to reveal a scraped-away layer of beige.

“Aurelia.”

Kate adjusted the pink-framed glasses on her nose, giving me an unobstructed view into her sullen eyes. She said my name like Mom did whenever I disappointed her. Over the last month, I’d heard that tone weekly, every time my sister, Max, called home and I’d told Mom I was too busy to say hello.

“I know, I know,” I said, tossing the glue stick on my super mature and adult-y Star Wars bedsheets. “But don’t worry, we’ll get this done and ace the presentation tomorrow. There’s a craft store five minutes from here. I’d say let’s walk, but it looks gross outside.”
