Also #MSWL High-concept YA contemporary or historical with easily digested strong hooks (light or dark). Everything from HEIST SOCIETY to SAVE THE DATE to WE WERE LIARS...

Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · Mar 22

#MSWL YA Historical Mystery! Whether it's fun & funny (think MISS FISHER) gothic, noir, procedural or lawless... get at me!

I have a lot of feelings about using need as a metric by which to judge works of art, particularly those that represent marginalized voices. So if you're concerned that teens may no longer "need" your marginalized rep. YA, no worries. That's still on my #MSWL

A big congrats to @RyanDouglas and huge thanks for the phrase "YA Social Thriller" which is a thing eternally on my #MSWL and I never knew how to describe it until now! @renarossner @PWKidsBookshelf
