ULTIMATE #MSWL please someone give me an #ownvoices #Hmong #YA novel about immigration and the #SecretWar. We need this story, especially for teens. No more hidden history.

#BookExpo session on the future of publishing has me thinking about the importance of representing the people where you live. So on that note: #YA #MSWL featuring Hmong characters and info on the Secret War and ensuing refugee movement. Plus if it’s in the Twin Cities!

#MSWL the serious girl power plus honest emotional impact of said power found in @elockhart’s The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Seriously, I wish I could go back to fifteen (yeah . . . let that sink in) just so I could read Frankie’s saga and find myself in it.

#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.

#MSWL a bunch of teens who discover they have super powers but just use them to do normal every day stuff. Controlling the weather for optimum spring break rays. Flying to school to save on gas.
