I saw a tween girl on a unicycle in the park yesterday. As she left the park she stopped, dismounted, and called to a boy her age, on his stoop across the street. He was also holding a unicycle. I want to know more! #MSWL

#MSWL YR/MG/YA graphic novels! Great art is the priority: by great I mean clean, expressive, well--and cleverly!--laid-out. You can do a lot with a little, but if you do a lot, those details better suck my face into the page. That+adorable, funny, heartbreaking characters.

#MSWL A novel--for any age group--about the breaking point in a friendship or family relationship. Tell me about having the strength to end contact with someone who can't be helped/is actively toxic. Relatedly: a book about intentional familial estrangement and its effects.

#MSWL A modern retelling of Phantom or Hunchback. Naturally #ownvoices are prioritized here, especially if the story if told from the perspective of a disabled character (in any case apart from these retellings as well).

#MSWL MG/YA featuring characters who are involved in their faith communities, even if they chafe a little within them. Discovering how your beliefs differs from others--even those you share a faith with--is an important growing-up moment!

#MSWL I'm missing some fun YA in my inbox lately--I'd love to see some wit, excitement, and high school hijinks. Sports, competitions, dances, clubs, etc. With a few crushes/kisses thrown in, of course.

#MSWL A Queer Eye-esque YA makeover story. When I say "QE-esque" I don't explicitly mean 5 gay dudes--think a mix of genders, sexualities, perspectives, and styles! I mean a makeover that focuses on competence and confidence and emotional intelligence, not just looks.
