Alison Weiss @alioop7I think there is a desperate need to fill the upper middle grade/young YA space.
I also think there's a desperate need for young middle grade that is much shorter to transition readers from chapter books to MG. I so rarely see subs in that space. We need to fix that.
Looking for both YA and adult contemporary stories of #ownvoices and #POC. Raw, honest voices. Real emotions, with a commercial hook. Please query me. I am always, always on the hunt for great storytellers. #MSWL
Here's a fun idea, #MSWL - a modern YA take on the 1999 movie, Jawbreaker, featuring a big cast of characters, with unique & complicated backstories. Something happens by accident, what will they do?
