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.
Miranda Kenneally 📚🏋️♀️🍹🏈🐕🐈😘 @MirandaKennealyJust reading about #WalkOutToVote and I'm suddenly desperate to read a YA novel about characters who ditch school to go vote. And then maybe end up on life changing road trip and fall in love? bit.ly/walkout116
Send this to me. #MSWL
Allie Levick @AllieLevickBecause of that, I’d like to see *nuanced, thoughtful, and respectfully handled YA* that: discusses a friend’s addiction #MSWL #amwriting #amquerying
Allie Levick @AllieLevickThread (TW): Recently, a friend and I were talking about how many people from our high school circles died before hitting age 25. Due in large part to addiction, suicide, and relationship violence. (1/4)
Hey #writingcommunity! I'm craving some #YA and #MG books that deal with underrepresented chronic illness. All sub-genres welcome, but particularly a fantasy/historical twist. Tweet me your pitches! 💕📚 @ManuscriptWList #MSWL #query
Kerstin WereWolf @Kerstin_WolfI also agree that there should be a more developed New Adult category. It’s pretty difficult to find books for where I’m at in my life now and that was equally true for when I was in college. 4/5
When I open to queries, I’d love to see some more of what I discussed in this thread: lower YA novels, light-hearted and uplifting YA fantasies, and fun NA novels. 5/5 #MSWL
Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitmanI've often said I'd LOVE a YA retelling of Much Ado, and I stand by that, but I'd love a feminist reclaiming of it, too. That's a #MSWL, by the way--YA graphic novel retelling of Much Ado about Nothing starring modern-day POC teens. What would such a retelling look like?
I would EXTREMELY love this. #MSWL
Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitmanRewatching the 90s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING and what hits me every time is that I forget that the plot revolves so much around the accusation of Hero not being a virgin. The parts I remember are the running around conspiring to make Benedic and Beatrice fall in love w/ each other.

Vicky Who Reads 🌸 @VickyCBooksit has been dropped~
check out my post on ✨ HOW YA ISOLATES TEENS (by me, a teen) to find out how YA can ignore it's primary intended audience! whether you're an author, publisher, or another reader, please keep in mind how teens NEED this space. 💕
My favorite comment and ask from this blog is more books written for 12-14 year olds. #MSWL because the blogger tells us, “all the books in the YA category are intimidating and seemingly for adults.”
Tiffany Shelton 🕯️⛤🌙 @TiffanyDiahannI'm going to keep shouting this out into the ether until I get it: GIVE ME CONTEMPORARY WITCHES! #MSWL #YA #Adult
I’m still begging for this!! #MSWL (please no satan-worship)
