He isn't doing anything illegal, but is it APPROPRIATE? HELL NO. Could you imagine this, but in a small town, where a behavior like rubbing the girl's shoulders or something else could be excused. Or had been so internalized by the town? 3/

All this to say, I am not a fan of abuse books, but this kind of book would fascinate me. Someone from the outside, who sees this, and sees something off and doesn't know what it is, but knows it is wrong. And then has to fit the town's internalized acceptance of it. #MSWL #YA

This is the kind of villain as protagonist origin story i want in YA #MSWL. I might be too scared to watch the movie though, but damn do I relate to Joker now.

Hello my nonfiction writing friends! I have a TON of #mswl tweets for you this morning, so buckle up.

I often tease @wensday95 by saying I am the children's version of her #MSWL but you know what, these look really cool and if you send them to her, I wouldn't mind trying to find a YRE angle.

I would love more modern European history that is post WWII #MSWL

(Last tweet didn't make sense cause lack of food) BUT What I meant to say was we don't live removed from our actions. We are interconnected. So what does that mean for the next generation? How do they grapple with their history? How do they move society forward?

History is doomed to repeat itself if we don't learn from our actions. And even when we do, as a whole, how do we as a society correct the course? I'm not sure what a YA would look like that deals with these issues and themes, but I'd love to see it. #MSWL

Something I have been thinking about lately as I edited @WillasRamblings's MS and watch BLACK EARTH RISING is the idea of having your future completely changed in an instant. And it has me thing about the deeper idea of working through the trauma and feelings of that.

And the idea of what we owe to one another. And how to we come out of painful histories and move forward as a society. So I interested in seeing books that explore these themes. Not sure what that would look like. It will have to be very nuanced and sensitively done. But #MSWL
