I think the book definitely falls under the broad umbrella of "women's fiction" as a work written by a woman about the lives of girls and women, so I'm comfortable with that categorization. But I am generally curious how much utility that umbrella has. Jennifer Weiner seems to sum it up well in a recent essay: "'Women’s fiction' has been a catchall term for years, an ever-expanding tent big enough to cover anything written for women or by a woman, or consumed primarily by women." What an enormous, diverse pool of work. I hope that potential readers of DISAPPEARING EARTH will get to hear its description, like you did, and feel out whether this particular one is right for them.

Everyone makes the occasional grammar error, so you're not alone there :) I would recommend 1) reading grammar and usage guides to keep up with evolving rules (e.g., THE ELEMENTS OF STYLE, DREYER'S ENGLISH), 2) reading your work out loud after you write it to catch typos, awkwardness, etc., and 3) sharing your work with other people to get their editorial feedback. Improving our writing is a lifelong endeavor. Wishing you lots of luck as you continue!(less)
