In YA & MG (incl GNs):
* Diverse contemporary stories that are authentic instead of trendy
* Novels that are by & about people whose tales are yet untold
* Soulful, insightful, & well-crafted projects
* Stories that leave me cackling πŸ˜† or sobbing 😭 long after I've read THE END

In PBs:
* Thought-provoking or entertaining stories, but not ones whose aim is to teach a lesson
* Unique characters w/ a very specific & kid-centric point of view
* Marginalized voices that allow the reader to feel seen & heard
* Narratives that make me giggle 🀣 or tear up πŸ₯Ή
