Galleys of the political thriller YA of my heart are in and ready for the world!

@ agents: if anyone is toting around a juicy thriller like this one, HMU #MSWL

In the wake of the series finale trailer, I still stand by my need to have @sense8 in #YA form #MSWL

I am obsessed with the sea and the stars. That’s all. #MSWL

Take a look at my #MSWL, send me #YA & #MG pitches, and also maybe call me / hang out with me 😎🤓

In the vein of a conversation I eavesdropped and then subsequently inserted myself into (@thejumbles & @Alex_Borbolla), if someone has a #PB involving mountain goats being mountain goats (illus. or photo)... can I have it? #MSWL

I'm not usually the person who asks for the next [BLANK] bc I am inherently against the idea, but what I would give for a #MG series as clever and atmospheric as A Series of Unfortunate Events. #MSWL

Stories of redemption are what I live for. I need to elaborate and add this to my #MSWL, but

Keep that in your noggin.

The galaxy’s junkyard and all that implies. #MSWL

"I want more roadtrip novels," she says, while reading a roadtrip novel. #MSWL

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.

Julia McCarthy @thejumbles

@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

Amanda Isabel Ramirez @AmandaIsA_Ram · Mar 13

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

Amanda Isabel Ramirez @AmandaIsA_Ram · Mar 8

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.
