From the RainTown Press guidelines:

We publish middle grade and young adult fiction. Genre doesn’t matter; quality of writing does—blow us away. We’re especially looking for anything that takes a common trope and does it with a new and unique twist. We want to engage avid and reluctant readers alike. (For examples of middle grade and YA books that have blown us away, check out the recommendations on our blog.)
