Looking for a YA contemporary with a quirky family similar to One Day at a Time (Netflix show). Diversity is a must. #ownvoices #MSWL

A YA or MG about a kid opposing the school board or local official. Maybe about banned books. And family supporting him/her. #MSWL

Didn't have a chance to post any #MSWL yesterday but maybe later today I will. Meantime, there's some right here:

Laura Bradford @bradfordlit · Feb 9

YA & MG w/ a multi-generational family-centric vibe a la Jane the Virgin--Latinx voices, Muslim voices, all voices #OwnVoices #mswl

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL A middle grade with a family of the kind shown in CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, with all of the moral complexities.

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · Feb 8

A picture book that features a refugee family's experience. #mswl

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · Feb 8

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · Feb 8

I'm looking for a picture book that features a foster family, adoption, or any sort of blended, non-traditional family structure. #mswl

YA where the protag doesn't get the love interest (or any love interest) in the end and that's totally okay. Romance isn't everything. #MSWL

I love romance, but it doesn't have to be the end all be all. I'd like to see the protag pick friendship or family…

Elaine Spencer @ElaineSpencer · Feb 8

#mswl Historical women's fiction from underrepresented world events, view points, religions, family backgrounds, etc

Jess Dallow @jldallow · Feb 8

Family stories, in vein of This is Us, This is Where I Leave You. Sibling dynamics. Parent/child relationships. Complexities & bonds. #MSWL

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · Feb 8

Supportive Found families. It's important to show kids/teens that if your family treats you poorly, you don't owe them anything. #MSWL

Melissa Jeglinski @MJeglinski · Feb 8

MG featuring protags where brains are their super power and they don't have a horrible/sad family life. #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Feb 8

#mswl - YA & MG stories about sibling relationships and family relationships; thinking of WONDER, I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN.

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Feb 8

#MSWL book club fiction in the style of J. Courtney Sullivan or Ann Leary that explores a diverse range of family and human experiences

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · Feb 8

Poignant, bittersweet, literary MG about family, friendship, and strong girls. STEM and WNDB always a plus! #mswl
