Diversity! Diversity! Diversity! All kinds of diverse stories and writers. #MSWL

Replying to @susanhawk

YA novels that include a complex but ultimately positive mother-child relationship. So often I see toxic mothers, want something else. #MSWL

PB, MG or YA books that make a difference in a child or teen’s life; that make you stop and SEE the world. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 29 Sep 2017

Writing that is clean and true, elegant and emotional. YA, MG and PBs that are bound to be the new classics. #MSWL

I want to be surprised! Something fresh, in YA, MG, and PB. #MSWL

HUMOR. The thru-line in my client’s work is a witty, generous sense of humor. #MSWL

I love a clever conceptual mash-up. Wizard of Oz meets Robin Hood? Bring it on! #MSWL

In terms of genre, my favorites (in no particular order) are: mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, hist-fic. I love a genre mash-up. #MSWL

YA or MG historical fiction about the Cold War in the 50s and 60s, esp in non-European/American settings. #MSWL

I’m fascinated by how our siblings affect who we become. Give me close, intense, layered sibling relationships in YA. #MSWL
