#MSWL So great to see the rise in #ownvoices YA realistic fic inspired by energized movements like BLM--I'd love to see more for MGers, too!

#MSWL Always and forever, I'd love to find an MG or YA novel about an aspiring rapper. Send me those hip hop stories!

Agents, I want to see coming-of-age YA fiction subs for existential, reflective, introspective teens. #MSWL
