Slush Pile: A publishing industry term referring to the "pile" of manuscript submissions an editor has on his or her desk (and inbox) at any given time, typically unsolicited and unagented.

"In the upstanding tradition of Nancy Drew and Harriet the Spy, Andi is spunky and unafraid to take risks, though she draws the line when Colin's life is threatened. Flower, an accomplished adult mystery author, offers here her first work for children, but not her last--sequels are on the way." -Booklist
