I've said it before, but now more than ever, I'm hungry for a YA novel that makes me feel the way the first half of THE POWER did. Agent friends, please send me your exciting, empowering, immersive new projects! #mswl

I'm craving a manuscript in any category/genre that captures the joy, magic, comfort, empathy, and belonging of best friendship (agented submissions only, please, per company policy) #mswl

Today seems like a good day to ask agent friends for a mg or ya novel that makes me feel as empowered as the first half of @naomialderman's THE POWER. Related: everyone needs to read #thePower. #MSWL

Can I be #MSWL greedy? Because I would also really love some contemporary-with-a-twist MG, agents. Ideally w/ unforgettable characters....
