Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.

A repelling yet compelling female YA protagonist, like in Ottessa Moshfegh's MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION. #mswl

Likable YA and MG characters who do unlikable things. Think Donna Tartt's Theo in the Goldfinch. #mswl

MG that's funny, charming, and full of heart. Oh! And with just a touch of magic. #MSWL

My kids are Chinese American. My son, in particular, doesn’t often see himself reflected in the books he reads. I’d love to see more #ownvoices MG books featuring male Asian American characters. #MSWL #askUpstart

More #MSWL notes in advance of #AskUpstart on Tue! Spooky, lyrical YA (think CHIME by Franny Billingsley).

Our #AskUpstart session is coming 8/7, I've got a few #MSWL notes. Will be tweeting these throughout the week. First up: I love a good, voicey flawed protagonist. Think Cassel in White Cat by Holly Black.
