How freeskier Elizabeth Swaney made it to the #WinterOlympics with this very simple halfpipe run: bit.ly/2sFywrc pic.twitter.com/kHTAV7XND4

This made me laugh so freaking hard. I would so love to see a YA about a teen who games the system to make it to the Olympics or other hugely competitive international event. #MSWL

Watching this interview with Adam Rippon yesterday gave me chills. I would love a YA contemp realistic in the vein of what he describes in the first 30 seconds of how far he went to achieve his dream of becoming an Olympic skater while still a teen. nbcolympics.com/video/adam-rip… #MSWL

I would so love a YA like this, contemp or fantasy. Chloe Kim’s dad texted her before the Olympic halfpipe final that she was about to become a dragon. nbcolympics.com/news/what-chlo… #MSWL

The stories of #WomenInScience being shared in the hashtag, I want to #MSWL them all (for picture book through YA).

@KiraWatsonESA What if you’re referencing a specific MSWL post? Should you mention it then?

Replying to @jordanmarigreen

Kira might disagree, but I absolutely want to know if a manuscript is similar to something on my #mswl since I only tweet out things I reallyreallyreally want to find.

"My math teacher is low-key terrified of all of us," the tween in my house told us tonight at dinner.

And then she explained why. (thread)

#MSWL Like, seriously. I would lol for an MG Frankie Landau-Banks. Maybe not kill, but it might get bloody if another agent tries to take it from me. *puts on brass knuckles*

Now this is YA manuscript I'd actually read: Teens try to game the system & fail spectacularly. Hijinks ensue. #MSWL Anti-hero(ine) perhaps?

A couple of #MSWL before I head off to bed for the night: Always at the top of my list is children's nonfiction, MG and YA in particular.
