#MSWL I want a #YA or #MG story about a Native people (not limited to America) who faced cultural suppression and relocation. The comp is RABBIT PROOF FENCE.

Send me all the gayest #MG because it’s what I needed in my childhood for sure
#MSWL

And can’t it be falling in love with someone in class on the first day? Or rival AYSO soccer teams with goalies who fall in love? That’s sounds great #MSWL

Just read a query that made me so hungry for more #voudou #NewOrleans #haiti #southerngothic - any sort of cultural element in that realm. PLEASE! #mswl #MG # YA

#MSWL reminder, I will jump at any #MG that comps Over The Garden Wall.

This kind of storytelling but MG or YA, please! *Especially* as MG. (Arguably MG is always something like this, at its purest state—stories of connection + hope—and I always want it!) #MSWL theguardian.com/books/2018/mar…

My #MSWL Madness post is up on the BookEnds blog! I talk about what I'm looking for in #pb, #mg, #ya and #gn fiction and nonfiction, and showcase the type of illustration that I have on my list: bookendsliterary.com/2018/03/15/tra…

When I was in middle school, I got bullied for saying I was Latinx bc I didn't look or sound Latinx. & that drove me to completely reject a core part of myself until I was AT LEAST 21.

So, a #MG about being white-passing is high up on my #MSWL.

#MSWL chapter book or middle grade novel. Here is our protagonist. Here is the feeling that pervades the book... JOY.
