“Stacey is one of the best YA readers and editors I’ve ever worked with. Her background in publishing and bookselling gives her a unique — and welcome — advantage in positioning the work she’s looking at, whether for an author or for an agent trying to make the work more sellable. I highly recommend her!”

Stacey has an uncanny ability to put her fingers right on your deepest fears and greatest blindspots of your story. She sees the tale as it is and as it could be. Her feedback is insightful, respectful, and actionable, without ever a hint of trying to change the story into something it’s not. There is no one I trust more with my stories than Stacey Kondla.”
