I'd love to find a YA that reminds me of @azizansari 's brilliant, funny, and wise Master of None on @netflix #MSWL @PhilomelBooks

Seconded! #MSWL https://t.co/ViIJyHTabB

Late-nite pondering: I’ve been reading articles/tweets (all sides) re: 13 Reasons Why. Just read this: https://t.co/k8OQ41t1a9 1/? #MSWL

Anyway, if you have a thoughtful YA ms. that explores this often-urgent-feeling teen desire to be immortalized somehow, pls send. 4/5 #MSWL

& I'm wondering re: the link I see b/w both: yearning by teens to be remembered after they're gone. What drives that aspiration? 2/? #MSWL

@InasAhmed16 We think they are tidally locked to their host star, which means they would have permanent night/day sides.

#MSWL - YA & MG that show how place impacts identity...about how geography & local culture helps to shape our stories.

Memory fascinates me. How it evolves as we evolve.Its relationship to perception, regret, change. Would love a YA or MG that explores. #MSWL

If you'd best describe yr YA/MG as the bk of yr heart, the one that only you could write at this time & in this way, I wanna read it. #MSWL

Molly O'Neill @molly_oneill · Feb 8

YA about vibrant, passionate, imperfect characters facing hard choices, navigating messy relationships & discovering important truths. #MSWL

Molly O'Neill @molly_oneill · Feb 8

MG/YA about connections b/w humans & scientific phenomena, the natural world, technology, or otherwise nerdy-delightful fascinations. #MSWL

Molly O'Neill @molly_oneill · Feb 8

Perpetual #MSWL request: YA/MG that explores questions of faith & belief but doesn't proselytize or try to answer questions for the reader.
