I wrote a new opening to the book that gets into my main character's head a little bit more. I also cut two scenes that were hard to cut. I liked these scenes a lot and they introduced my two co-protagonists. But in reality, it doesn't need to be there. Introducing them they way I did just took away the emphasis on my MC.

Now this gives my MC a sense of identity that I think was lacking before. I've ironed out a few issues in the third act and feel that with just a few more tweaks I should be ready to find a critique group. There has to be one somewhere around Chicago. Also need to look for some writing conferences.
