When I was in middle school, I got bullied for saying I was Latinx bc I didn't look or sound Latinx. & that drove me to completely reject a core part of myself until I was AT LEAST 21.

So, a #MG about being white-passing is high up on my #MSWL.

@AmandaIsA_Ram @OneDayAtATime YESSSSSS

Replying to @thejumbles

& if someone wants to throw in the struggle of a US born & raised Latinx having to choose between a quince & a sweet 16, I won't complain!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a weirdly specific ask but I WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!! #MSWL

I have an intense need for a #YA about a quinceañera & the drama that entails. Family relationships. Feeling out of place & not knowing who you are & connecting w/ your heritage.

Basically, give me @OneDayAtATime's Elena Alvarez in book form. #MSWL

I need a Queer Eye #YA like I need air to breathe.

The Fab 5 being pure and wholesome and making the world a happier place one make-better at a time. With an actual, overarching plot, obv. #MSWL

I would like to amend my taste in pictures books to -

Tongue-in-cheek subversive shenanigans... and @JessieSima #MSWL

A protag whose actions are informed by their religion - but religion shouldn't be the story's focus (think Matt Murdock in @Daredevil) #MSWL

Reading a proposal today made me remember this #MSWL, which I'm still on the hunt for!

I don't want religion to be a point of contention or an Issue™ - just a natural part of their everyday life while they deal with other growing pains.

Expanding the YA spectrum to include older main characters and college experiences can be super beneficial to readers.

Not only teens read YA. Also, personal growth and education doesn't stop by merely applying for college.

Me, describing my taste in middle grade: I like my adventures fast and furious. #MSWL

Hello, #MSWL a #YA that feels like this music video but preferably with murder.…

Here's a thought! I GEEK OUT over cyclical narratives, like THE OUTSIDERS & KIDS OF APPETITE. #MSWL
