I remember this movie that ends with a boy & girl from Earth being dropped off on a planet somewhere in the cosmos to start over/2nd chance, this while I think Earth's being destroyed/punished for our failures. Riff on this w/YA or MG. What happened/happens to these kids #MSWL.

Would love a #MG novel like SNOW ONE LIKE YOU by Natalie Blitt, basically anything that has the feel of a Hallmark romance but for middle schoolers. Setting is important. Has to have that small town feel. #MSWL

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

#MSWL Give me a MG novel where a group of middle school friends (guys and girls) get sucked into a #Fortnite game! And ... go!

If you want to know something about me, it’s that I love baseball. I’m a “travel” baseball mom. Little league. Big League. Braves. Give me a baseball book. MG, YA, Romance, who knows... but baseball. #MSWL

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL

I am seeing lots of agents #MSWL quirky humor and MG. I love this too! What editor friends are in the market for off-beat humor done well?!

#MSWL Today, I found myself driving along the original Trail of Tears. As a person of Cherokee descent, I would love to see a #YA (maybe #MG) centered on the Trail of Tears. #POC Any stories built from oral tradition? #NativeAmerican

#MSWL my MG twins want to see a jock who's really smart but hides it bc he doesn't want people to think he's a nerd. Insert nerdy girlfriend

#MSWL. U know "Summer at Sea?" I want futuristic "Summer in Space." Spaceship goes adrift? YA (more serious) or MG (funny w/missing adults)

#MSWL Looking for contemporary #MG w/kids on their own in extraordinary circumstances doing extraordinary things. Just reread Hatchet!

#MSWL BIG PIC: #MG where likeable/smart/capable 12yo finds himself smack in the middle of the apocalypse. Humourous voice. Go from there...

#MSWL Modern day #MG take on The Box Car Kids series - again with series potential.
