#MSWL YR/MG/YA graphic novels! Great art is the priority: by great I mean clean, expressive, well--and cleverly!--laid-out. You can do a lot with a little, but if you do a lot, those details better suck my face into the page. That+adorable, funny, heartbreaking characters.

#MSWL MG/YA featuring characters who are involved in their faith communities, even if they chafe a little within them. Discovering how your beliefs differs from others--even those you share a faith with--is an important growing-up moment!

#MSWL I'm missing some fun YA in my inbox lately--I'd love to see some wit, excitement, and high school hijinks. Sports, competitions, dances, clubs, etc. With a few crushes/kisses thrown in, of course.

#MSWL A Queer Eye-esque YA makeover story. When I say "QE-esque" I don't explicitly mean 5 gay dudes--think a mix of genders, sexualities, perspectives, and styles! I mean a makeover that focuses on competence and confidence and emotional intelligence, not just looks.

#MSWL MG/YA mock trial that turns into a real mystery to solve.

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

#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.

I'd also still love a YA epistolary in texts, chats, and emails about getting Catfished! #MSWL

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 12 Sep 2017

Another I'm still dying for: Missed Connections YA romance. I'm a sucker for both parties making the effort to find each other again! #MSWL

Very ready for a rich, exciting new world to explore. Preferably MG/YA, but adult is okay, too! #MSWL

#MSWL A YA where a private-school girl starts her own underground crisis management business for classmates. Think Scandal + Gossip Girl.

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 27 Jun 2017

A YA (think updated MATILDA) where a tough girl harnesses her newfound telekinetic powers to dispense justice at school and at home. #MSWL

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 8 Feb 2017

A YA epistolary novel told through chats, emails, and texts about the decline of a best-friendship. #MSWL
