How Cambodian Refugees Started the Pink Doughnut Box Trend — https://t.co/kXSOUwf8E4 https://t.co/KhSyMC7IpG

Very specific #MSWL : a YA about a Cambodian-American teen whose family runs a donut shop. Sounds delicious. 🍩😋 https://t.co/HkU2E9j3i0

YA where the parents are like, real characters. Not dead. Not absent. But there and actually parents #MSWL

YES, and: a YA about a fraught mother/daughter relationship. #MSWL https://t.co/q407ufem8V

A YA about a weird, immersive summer job & all the relationships that come out of it. Adventureland for teens. #MSWL

I just watched Little Witch Academia & it was my favorite. Badass lil witches learning about magic & how to be friends. MG, I think. #MSWL

Eliza Swift @elizaswift · Sep 12

A complicated, messy, heartbreaking, hysterical, ultimately loving story about female friendship in YA. #MSWL

Eliza Swift @elizaswift · Sep 12

A YA about a teen's devotion to a craft (a sport, an instrument, etc) and what that means for the other aspects of their life. #MSWL

Eliza Swift @elizaswift · Sep 12

Someone send me a YA with dark humor reminiscent of DROP DEAD GORGEOUS #MSWL

YES TO THIS! #MSWL https://t.co/Mxw76h5NcU

Hey book gods (aka agents), @AnnieNybo and I both want to see a cute quinceañera YA. #MSWL

Friday #MSWL : I've been reading a lot of fun books recently. I want to read a YA that's real and gritty and emotionally exhausting.

Thanks to whomever retweeted @VashtiHarrison in my feed...I'm obsessing over her incredible art.

Related: I LOVE this one from @VashtiHarrison and a new #MSWL is a literal black girl magic YA. https://t.co/LdHXCmhA16

We're known at @AlbertWhitman for THE BOXCAR CHILDREN. I want today's version of it, with characters and settings that feel contemp. #MSWL

This is a somewhat-unspecific want, but I've been seeing a lot of sister stories recently. I want to read a bro/sis story, any age. #MSWL

I've been obsessing over CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND recently, and would love to see a YA comedy that balances earnest/sweet with funny. #MSWL

In MG, I'd love to see a fun girl-driven adventure story, like a MG Indiana Jones. Diverse leads & authors very, very welcome. #MSWL

I'm acquiring across the whole age range for kids, from picture books on up, but I'm particularly looking for chapter books, MG and YA.
