I'm reading I'M WITH THE BAND on my break, and wasn't prepared for Pamela Des Barres' teen diary entries. She nails what it's like to be young, hormone-fueled, and utterly obsessed.
I hesitate to suggest it for #MSWL, but...done well, a YA along these lines could be awesome.
Alexandra Erin @alexandraerinSupernatural romance where a modern woman falls in love with the ghost of an old timey nobleman but then she becomes aware of all the anachronisms in his stories of his life (potatoes pre-contact and the like) and eventually he admits he's just a guy who died at a costume party.
If you have written the YA version, consider this my official #mswl request. If you haven't, what are you waiting for?! 👻
Give me the next L.J. Smith: I want your #YA sexy vampires, your Camelot-inspired witches, your Norse gods and psychic teenagers, grounded in a semi-timeless "contemporary" setting. Better yet if they're POC and #ownvoices. #mswl
