High Concept

Tip: I have more room on my list for MG than YA right now. Diverse, plot-driven, imaginative, high-concept, heartfelt. Hit me. #MSWL

#MSWL MG/YA fiction high-conceptl but w/fully-dimensional characters, ie intersection of literary/commercial. Twisty plots no horror or SF

For MG/YA, I’m looking for high-concept or commercial-leaning fiction. Good plots and good twists. Not picky on genre (but NO horror). #MSWL

Seeking upmarket/structurally interesting/sweeping love stories of all kinds. #MSWL: a high concept LGBTQ love story in the vein of ONE DAY.

...a standout, high concept YA series; books about how identity is both passed down and reformed with each generation... (2/?) #DVPit #mswl

#MSWL in YA or Adult -> original ghost stories, eerie near-contemporary settings, long buried secrets, high concept coming of age.
