Beta Readers, Anyone??

You guys, I am on the last two chapters. And I mean the last two chapters. After I finish editing these two, I will be done. And I'm still freaking out about it. This is really my last edit, so here comes the big question.

Does anyone want to beta read for me?

My novel is a YA Action-Adventure/Sci-Fi, and might be considered a little Dystopian. Here's a summary:

Sixteen year old Jaina Indera has been training for this moment her entire life. Ever since the Imperial Alliance genetically selected her to attend a Gifted School, she has done her best to prove herself worthy of competing in The Trials.
Being chosen is just the beginning. Her region will send a team of ten students to compete in the first of four rounds of mental and physical challenges against other Gifted Schools. If they win, they will enjoy the privileged life of a 'Superior' in the Crystal City. If they lose... they could lose everything.
With the sudden appearance of a boy called 'Dragon' and her unsettling dreams, two months before the Trials, Jaina begins to question everything she has been taught to believe.
Will she find balance between love, loyalty, and the truth behind it all?

So, yeah, that's my summary. Anyway, if you'd like to beta read for me, please email me at violingirl4036@gmail.com and I'll get back by Monday!! Thanks so much, everyone!

Help me, beta readers, you're my only hope...

--Jess

Hi Jess: It's such an exciting feeling to know you're that close. I've been there. With one successfully published book and the second very close to being finished, I can appreciate the hard work you put in to it.

I would love you beta read your book. Your mission, should you choose to accept it - contact me via email if you think I'm a good candidate. No hard feelings if you don't.

Hey Jess! I'd love to do an exchange with you in a few weeks. I've just sent mine off for two beta reads and would love to have you read the next version. WOuld be perfect actually since that will give you a chance to revise after your first crits.
I'd love to have your thoughts on mine... and your story sounds great.
I'll be in touch with you next month if you're still interested. :)
