A story you can describe in a single sentence that hooks someone’s attention, & with the depth that keeps them hooked throughout #MSWL

I'd really love a fantasy YA based on cultural mythology with lyrical writing #MSWL

Yesss #mswl https://t.co/WS6q1z4YQi

#MSWL contemporary YA with a smart girl and a strong mom. (Yes, I'm binge-watching GG on Netflix.) https://t.co/LmEddypGMb

Still this :) #MSWL https://t.co/iV2lUUD4OS

In YA, contemporary realistic with a voice that nails emotion, subtlety, and has a specificity to it. A book only that author could do #MSWL

Looking for a YA female antihero, a la Jessica Jones or the ladies of Unreal #MSWL

Love it #MSWL https://t.co/WD9oIQ5pKO

I'm looking for YA that tackles serious issues like bullying, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, racism, rape, domestic violence, etc. #MSWL

Would love a book, YA or MG, that's just a bucket of sass--loud, voicey, snarky humor, with an MC I can root for. #MSWL

#MSWL I'd love to rep one! https://t.co/qE4FemLPnc

I love side-character romance. Possibly more than full-on romance. Show me the YA where the best friend and the brother fall in love #MSWL

If your MS *does* fit something specific on my #MSWL , still use https://t.co/F1RVZiGd09, + include #MSWL in Subject line.

Alex Barba @AlexandraBarba · Jun 30 2016

Always: Your MS mustn't fit exact specifications of #MSWL - if you have a *great* YA or MG, send it! Sub guidelines: https://t.co/F1RVZiGd09

I should just Princess Bride my #MSWL list: "Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, True Love, miracles..."

Definitely! #MSWL https://t.co/lqBzF1lQHW

MC who cares more about learning (& eventually conquering the world) than popularity/looks #MSWL #Rorygoals https://t.co/iV2lUUD4OS

Alex Barba @AlexandraBarba · Jun 30 2016

Fantasy YA, but feels like a realistic world. Sharp, humorous retellings with empowered girl protagonists, à la Gail Carson Levine #MSWL

Oh how I'd love to help bring a new ELLA ENCHANTED to the world! #MSWL https://t.co/jw9H9IhbnT

Alex Barba @AlexandraBarba · Jun 30 2016

YA with a compelling, complicated romance at the forefront, like a YA Emily Giffin or Nicholas Sparks #MSWL

#MSWL https://t.co/b9Fcobzrgp

Alex Barba @AlexandraBarba · Jun 30 2016

YA where the central relationship is two close girlfriends instead of a romance #MSWL

Always this <3 #MSWL #YA https://t.co/RZVeDTOqdD

Clean teen YA about that awkward teen phase #MSWL

#MSWL Help me relive the awkward. Feel all the feelings. Grow and change and learn. :) #MG #YA https://t.co/fdlJnY24kF
