MG

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Feb 20

I know I'm not going out on a limb here by saying how much I loved HELLO, UNIVERSE, but I read it this weekend and good heavens I loved it! If you are querying a MG like this, please send it my way. This book was amazing, and my heart belongs to Gulliver. #MSWL

@KiraWatsonESA Hello! What are your Top Three #MSWL at the moment? :) #askagent

Replying to @BevTwomey

1) 90's YA with a young woman trying to enter the metal scene
2) Emotionally hefty contemporary YA. (Think #GirlInPiece)
3) YA/MG/PB on weightlifting and powerlifting #MSWL #askagent

Saturday Evening Thoughts

I would really love to find an exciting, middle grade adventure/ fantasy set somewhere other than the US or Europe.

Great example: THE SERPENT'S SECRET by @Sayantani16

I’ve been listening to THE GREATEST SHOWMAN album all night—it’s so good! Now I’m craving some #circus themed submissions in my inbox right w/ a hint of #magicalrealism (& by circus, I don't mean clowns!) #A #WF #YA #MG #MR #MSWL

#Querying? Send me your contemporary #MG, especially if it plays with structure like Jack Cheng's See You in the Cosmos. Send me your historical fantasy #YA, especially if it has a multicultural cast like Heidi Heilig's The Girl From Everywhere. #MSWL

Okay, I need a MG about a dog show. Let's do this. #MSWL

I would love to find a fun, queer, #ownvoices MG that makes me as happy and hopeful as STAR-CROSSED by Barbara Dee. #MSWL goodreads.com/book/show/2724…

On my wish list— engaging stories with #STEM / #STEAM focus or tie-in…#MSWL #mglit #YAlit (And a belated happy #IDWGS2018!)

Agent friends, are any of your clients writing middle grade novels about outcast tweens trying to start a hobby-horseing team? Because I would read the hell out of that. #mswl youtube.com/watch?v=PAY-Zs…

I am seeing lots of agents #MSWL quirky humor and MG. I love this too! What editor friends are in the market for off-beat humor done well?!

I'm not really a horror person, but I would totally dig a MG or YA graphic novel about an escape room that turns deadly... #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Feb 7

I'd really love to find a high concept, literary middle grade novel, be it realistic or otherwise. Please, universe? #mswl
