#MSWL YA: A protag whose parents are involved in his/her life in a positive way (not dead/out of the picture). Let's see more 3D parents!

As always, MCs who are not white, straight, cis, able, etc. #mswl

Literary historical fiction (YA or MG) about the misogynist persecution of midwives, esp re: accusations of witchcraft. #MSWL
