Courtesy of the BookEnds' Slack and @BookEndsJessica putting it in my end, I now need a #MSWL for a Gay MG Parent Trap style book.

And also kid entrepreneurs. Possibly underground sparkly slime business. Or a homecoming mum shop.

#MSWL Cozy Magic MG. Think bookshops. Plant shops. Sweaters, and hot chocolate and blankets feeling inducing.

Quick reminder for #MSWL peeps: I only do Kidlit. So YA, MG, PB, or GN in MG or YA.

Celebrity crush culture. And all the cyber stalking that implies. #MG or #YA #MSWL

(And yes, I have been crushing on Aaron as a result of the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, thank you for asking)

#MSWL mermaids. But like, Thirteenth Year mermaids. And atmospheric mermaid lore. Can be YA or MG. But it is probably quiet, and emotionally fraught.

Last one before i run is inspired by my new RBG socks "Dawn of Justice". I remember being a student mediator. I would love to see a MG about a kid who doles out the justice of the streets without using violence, and instead their words and their mind. #MSWL

One of my friends only discovered his love of drag after college and it made me wonder what if. And he always loved make-up (he did the theater make-up since he was an actor) What would this MG look like? Please show me. #MSWL

I really love the Descendants so I would love to see a MG about a kid that deals with growing out of the family shadow. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

So it would have to be paired with a plot A that is hella cool but I would love to see a book that deals with parent that is absentee, or infrequent in a kid's life. That does a number on people (personal experience) and I think having a book showcase that is important. #MSWL

And I'd love to find a book that deals with poverty and homelessness in a sensitive and kid friendly way #MSWL

I love diverse voices. So I want to be swept into other cultures. I want to be immersed into new experiences.

We are all human and the universal is in the specifics #MSWL

Kid entrepreneurs! Kids standing up to authority! MG is when you are finally getting a sense of identity outside of the family unit and this would be perfect! Undergorund slime business out of the bathroom? YES #MSWL

Magical realism in MG is another one. This was the time when most of us in TX wanted to grow up, but it was also when I think we also still had a sense of wonder. So MG magical realism feels perfect here. #MSWL

I love DERRY GIRLS and I think you can totally pull that off in MG as well. Would also love to see a book that deals with friendships and break-ups. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

I really want to find some great MG fantasy. Until some of my favorite recent reads sell, you won't know the names, but I would love to see an immersive world and epic adventure. #MSWL

Let's do an #MG #MSWL thread!

I really would love a good mermaid book. Think THE THIRTEENTH YEAR or MAYBE A MERMAID. I'm looking for something quieter here than underwater sea kingdoms, people. #MSWL
