MG

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 20 Nov 2018

What am I hungry to find in my queries, you ask? Creepy, psychological (not gory) horror, MG or YA. Give me something strange with a gradual, gripping sense of unease -- make my spine shiver! #MSWL

Currently nerding out over Erik Larson’s meticulously detailed account of the last days of the Lusitania in Dead Wake, having flashbacks to my childhood obsession with A Night to Remember...

Anybody writing a YA or MG set aboard a slowly sinking ship? #MSWL

When I was a kid/teen, I had so many complicated feelings about myself, my body, and my peers in all things related to sports (swimming’ll do that). I would LOVE to find a middle grade or YA narrative that takes on this kind of emotional arc. #mswl

My number one wish list item right now is heartfelt, voice- and relationship-driven contemporary MG. Recent faves like IVY ABERDEEN, LOVE LIKE SKY, and FRONT DESK gave me families, friendships, and crushes that felt achingly, oh so real. If you have it, I want it! 😊 #MSWL

I'd love to see some more fun, quirky #MG in my inbox right now #MSWL. Looking for that wonderful voice that just sucks you in

I remember this movie that ends with a boy & girl from Earth being dropped off on a planet somewhere in the cosmos to start over/2nd chance, this while I think Earth's being destroyed/punished for our failures. Riff on this w/YA or MG. What happened/happens to these kids #MSWL.

#mswl: A funny, modern middle-grade voice that reminds me of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. If you're out there, email me! ebewley@sll.com.
