Give me a fresh spin on The Prodigal Son story. #MSWL

There's often a lot of bending over backwards in YA to create alternate worlds/societies that are led by teenagers/young adults. Why not pull from real life and give me a book about riding the rails/hobo culture? I'm fascinated. #MSWL

Hey, authors who are knitters--how about a book that revolves around "the sweater curse" and the magic (or myth) therein? #MSWL

#MSWL Not just (another) YA novel about having anxiety, but about the misunderstandings that arise between friends when one DOESN'T have anxiety, and how to deal.

#MSWL: The photos that we have of space may have been taken recently, but the images they show are thousands of years old, thanks to how light travels. I'm not typically one for alien stories, but I'm curious about how this would affect that circumstance.

#MSWL: A near-future novel about the end of the open internet, and how a grassroots rebellion is communicated and grown BOTH analog/off the grid and by circumventing Big Brother online. Give me handwritten codes, brilliant strategy, and principled hackers, please!

A complicated, faithful Christian protagonist, particularly for teenagers. #MSWL

I want to read about friends with unusual & practical talents. Locks/safecracking, forgery, etc. You decide how they employ them. :) #MSWL
