I still really really want a YA Orphan Black. Sci-if in a near future, complicated girls and women, great character arcs, found family #mswl

Literary stories about ordinary teens, especially those focused on family, relationships, sexuality, mental illness, or addiction. #YA #MSWL

I talk a lot about wanting LGBTQ YA—but lately I'm really dying for an LGBTQ middle grade! Self-discovery, first crushes, family! #MSWL

Really hungry for some funny, heartfelt, non-issue-heavy MG, with great family relationships. My list has nothing but room for MG. #mswl
