Can I be #MSWL greedy? Because I would also really love some contemporary-with-a-twist MG, agents. Ideally w/ unforgettable characters....

Agent friends, I am eager for contemporary-with-a-twist middle grade. Also historical-epic-w/-a-twist MG. Twisty MG, basically! #MSWL

Krakatoa wasn't Tambora, but this reminded me of The 21 Balloons. I'd love a new MG like that!

And well-researched, well-executed historical fiction that (metaphorically) grabs you and punches you in the gut repeatedly #MSWL

Also for sweeping, epic mg fantasy that brings something new to the table #MSWL
