I'm really feeling classic adventure / fantasy MG right now #MSWL
Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · 19 Oct 2017
#MSWL spooky, quirky MG that is playfully halfway between dark & delightful a la THE GRAVEYARD BOOK or PETER NIMBLE or CORALINE
#MSWL always your MG adventure sf/f that explores non-western cultures, voices, myths, worlds!
Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · 26 Jun 2017
Also deeply into MG Mystery & Adventure lately #MSWL

#MSWL adventure-y, fantasy, escape-y Middle Grade.

As ever, as always Marginalized and underrepresented voices in YA, MG, and Adult #mswl
#MSWL spooky whimsical adventure MG a la NIGHT GARDENER or GRAVEYARD BOOK and spooky gothic lush YA
#MSWL heart aching literary MG and coming of age with a plot - either magical or contemp - think RULES FOR STEALING STARS

Also #MSWL gotta love some classic, fun middle grade adventure. The only thing I would read as a wee one. #WhereTheRedFernGrowsRuinsLives

#MSWL whimsical, magical, fantastical, adventurous #MiddleGrade. OPHELIA AND THE MARVELOUS BOY, GREENGLASS HOUSE, THE WITCH'S BOY, and on...

#MSWL commercial MG for the reader who isn't into sophisticated literary MG, but isn't interested in chapter books with younger protags.
Strongly plotted MG and YA with humor and irreverence like FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF or THE FOURTH STALL or VERONICA MARS
#MSWL atmospheric novels in MG, YA and Adult that offer a strong sense of place and time whether historical, contemporary or fantasy!
#MSWL any Middle Grade that might possibly remind of Karen Foxlee's OPHELIA AND THE MARVELOUS BOY

#MSWL anything that gets me to laugh! KING DORK, WHERE'D YOU GO BERNADETTE and SCARLETT EPSTEIN all cracked me up #MG #YA #Adult
#MSWL a creepy gothic or southern gothic or near ghost story a la WINTER PEOPLE in #MG #Adult #YA
#MSWL #MG or #YA I'd love a voicey, literary novel where the setting and/or time is almost a character.
