Beta Readers Needed!

I just got an email from an agent who says she might be interested in representing me and my latest book, which is the first step to getting professionally published. She's only asked for the first three chapters so far, but if those impress her she'll want to see the entire book. Nobody else has read this book yet, and I want to make sure everything is as good as it can be when/if she asks to see it. Is anyone interested in giving it a quick read? It's not very long and was written with preteens to young adult readers in mind. It's called Henry Rider: Clown Hunter

EDITED: look below

Hell yeah. I'll read it right now.

I'm definitely not a professional editor, but I found the overall story to be entertaining. There are a few minor typos or words left out, but they didn't impede my reading or enjoyment of the story.

Thanks! I'm actually working on an alternate ending that I think is better than the one I have now. I'll post it to the end of the doc after it's finished.

Got word back from the agent. She loves the book, wants to represent it, but thinks it needs to be rewritten to feel more "visceral." I've been rewriting it ever since. I'm adding new chapters to this google doc whenever I finish them. If anyone's still interested in helping out, I'm way more than interested in hearing what you think!

Are the new chapters marked to separate them from the original chapters?
