Aneeka Kalia @neeks_kalia12Agents, I love picture books (please keep sending them to me) but I'd love to add some funny, contemporary middle grade to my upcoming lists! #mglit #MSWL pic.twitter.com/YXOtxp9w5N

Excited about this new imprint! I'm definitely looking for more books from Native-focused authors that remind me of my grandmother and her Cherokee traditions.
Tiffany Colón @TiffanyJadeCoI have so much great YA in my inbox. AGENTS... where is the middle grade and why are you hiding it from me?
K.A. Holt 🏳️🌈 @karianneholtMy son's teacher got booted from their class Zoom, and a kid in class was randomly made the host. The kid immediately muted everyone, starting played Juice Wrld, and a dance party ensued.
I mean... give that kid credit for being prepared.
Jolene Haley @JoleneHaleyThere are not nearly enough YA mysteries in my inbox. I want stories full of secrets and intricately woven storylines with friendship/enemies/romance at the core.
Think: Pretty Little Liars, One of Us is Lying, Revenge, Twisted, The Lying Game
I can't wait to read yours! #mswl pic.twitter.com/9AK7xWUGK4

Dean Lines @deanlinesWhen I was like 14, me and a few mates would “wag” French class and hide out in the soundproof drum room until lunch time. This went on for a few weeks when one day we discovered a “trap door” beneath the carpet tiled floor under the drum kit. We of course opened the trap door.. twitter.com/spur_of/status…
The tone, the humor, the shenanigans. I love it.
