Still looking for a MG that makes me cry. #MSWL

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL A middle grade with a family of the kind shown in CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, with all of the moral complexities.

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL I'm looking for BOLD: writers/stories/characters. This is not the time to for passivity. MG/YA

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL Looking for positivity in MG/YA. Not all sunshine and lollipops, but not bleak, either.

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL heartfelt yet with humor, strongly plotted, diverse MG with unforgettable characters.

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL immersive, epic YA HF a la All The Light You Cannot See. if #ownvoices even better. #tellyourstory

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · Feb 8

#MSWL MG/YA fiction high-conceptl but w/fully-dimensional characters, ie intersection of literary/commercial. Twisty plots no horror or SF

#MSWL cathartic middle grade novel. I need a good honest cry.

We see YA books in performing arts schools, ballet companies, high school band (not as much on that last) but never corps. #MSWL

@tubooks I will keep an eye out for you for this one! #mswl #agentlife

Retooling my #MWSL for 2015. Some of my former #MSWL came true in 2014!

I love books with kick-a$$ girls, but would also love to see main characters who have dark days and don't always have it together. #MSWL
