Gimme a stylized YA noir ala the movie BRICK. #mswl

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Jun 30

Query me with an adult Noir mystery, that while it stays true to the conventions of Noir, it breaks/modernizes many of its clichés. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Jun 30

#MSWL YA with a film noir feel. Give me a teenage Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · May 19

I'd love to find a YA contemporary Scandy Noir novel: like, The Bridge, The Killing for teens. #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · Apr 19

Secret loves: novels set on communes/intentional communities, books with a noir feel, heroes that don't think they're heroes. #mswl

Sarah LaPolla @sarahlapolla · Mar 20

In case anyone needs a reminder, Pushing Daisies is Roald Dahl meets noir meets pie. It's streaming on the CW app. Also on my #MSWL forever!

Kate Brauning @KateBrauning · Oct 27 2015

I am eagerly looking for fantastic YA Western noir thrillers for @EntangledTeen . Send send send! #MSWL

Sean McCarthy @mccarthylit · Jul 28 2015

In MG and YA, I'd love to see genre-bending narratives (like a noir-Western or mystery-fantasy) that shows mastery of both forms. #MSWL

Natasha Simons @ndotsimons · Jul 28 2015

I'm looking for domestic noir, dark female-helmed-or-focused suspense, digital celebrities, smart politics, and literary horror. #MSWL

Suspense/mystery-esp. historical, gothic, cozy, noir & genre-bending mysteries w/smart language, humor & quirky characters #MSWL #NewAgent

Norah Myers @bookish_norah · Mar 17 2015

could someone send me a 'domestic noir' like 'how to be a good wife' or 'hausfrau'? #MSWL

Bree Ogden @breeogden · Feb 18 2015

YA noir. And I don’t mean just crime fiction, I mean noir. It’s a distinct style. I’d love to see it in YA. #MSWL

Marco Palmieri @mxpalmieri · Feb 18 2015

Feminist dieselpunk / noir SF/F novel. #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · Feb 18 2015

Contemp. MG of all types from literary to commercial. Adventure/mystery to coming of age. I'd love a YA noir. Diverse characters! #MSWL

Noah Ballard @NoahBallard · Oct 23 2014

Somebody listen to this and write me a cyberpunk noir thriller. PLEASE! I'm thinking Orphan Black, but noir. #mswl http://t.co/guojyc0KSF
