I don’t naturally gravitate to teen, but could someone PLEASE send me a #YA of EVERYTHING SUCKS? That scene when she tore down JTT to put up Tori and Fiona posters gave me life. #mswl

Was just chatting with @KeriHoran about how millennials are going to spawn THE WORST kids. Like, imagine being a teen & crushin on someone & being able to creep on their Disney trip when they were 4. & geotag tells them they stood in the same line in Epcot. #MSWL #YA

Rounding out my #mswl day w a editor reminder: lots of tweets today were mood/theme-based. Specifics don't always matter. Writing does, tho.

An interesting #MG could be one that looks at when a kid actually has to come of age--btwn gender and race--& that meaning. #mswl #challenge

I really love extraordinarily clever #MG books. Not Norton Juster clever. But Megan Whalen Turner clever. #mswl

When do girls/women decide (blindly or not) to wear makeup? Why? What does it mean? #MG #MSWL

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 12 Sep 2017

I would love a speculative or fantasy #YA #MG that is actually contemp--because really horrors exist & aren't theoretical. #mswl

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 12 Sep 2017

A #YA or #MG about a SJW being forced to see their own privilege/nuances-like a griff becoming a slytherin. #mswl

(this is v half baked)

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 12 Sep 2017

I would like a non-pedantic or necessarily straight forward #PB about consent pls. #mswl

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 12 Sep 2017

Could I get an #YA or #MG Insecure? I'm still reeling from that season finale. #mswl

I would love a #MG or #YA about a protag obsessed with physics, esp since I know so little of the subject. #MSWL
