Dial Books for Young Readers

But seriously now all I want is a young readers #howtosurviveaplague #mswl. Lgbtqi history is so important, and so is the power of activism.

More books with female-identifying lesbian and bi main characters. #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 23 Mar 2017

YA and MG that shows emotional, sensitive, dimensional boys. Books that address the pressures to be stereotypically "masculine." #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 8 Feb 2017

Meaty, emotionally deep books that aren't afraid of tackling difficult issues. #mswl

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 8 Feb 2017

YA where the protag doesn't get the love interest (or any love interest) in the end and that's totally okay. Romance isn't everything. #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 8 Feb 2017

Complex and nuanced and deep friendship stories. Or stories about trying to overcome loneliness and make friends. YA and MG #mswl

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 8 Feb 2017

Sex-positive (and still really thoughtful) YA, please. #mswl

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 8 Feb 2017

I've said it before but I am always looking for MG and YA with strong feminist characters and themes. #mswl

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 30 Jun 2016

Always looking for YA and MG that make me feel like I've been punched in the gut. (Emotionally punched in the gut, that is.) #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 30 Jun 2016

Friendships are so important to teens, and I would love to see more deep, complex, heartfelt friendship stories in YA. #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 15 Jun 2016

I was obsessed with Donnie Darko as a teen. Would love a YA that brings me all those same weird, intense, twisty turny feelings. #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 18 May 2016

Is there a YA version of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries? Would love something fun and feminist set in the 1920s. #MSWL

Stacey Friedberg @StaceyFriedberg · 26 Feb 2016

Would love to have YA or MG that deals with poverty and/or class differences in a way that feels nuanced and authentic. #MSWL
