#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short

Something I want to add to my #MSWL is that I find the rules of being a translator, especially for a deaf person, to be interesting. It would be interesting to see an MG about a child who has to speak for their parent (whether deaf or non-English speaking) and to see what happens

In both YA and MG, I need more fantasy. Fair warning: I will be picky. I am looking for lush worlds, complex characters, and writing that sweeps me away. #MSWL

So to clarify since people misunderstood what Disney's the thirteenth year is: I want a contemporary MG about a young kid going through puberty and become a mermaid. #MSWL

I would love to get a MG that feels like ANNE OF GREEN GABLES and has a Gilbert to match. #MSWL

I want a middle grade humor book. My favorite is THE MORTIFICATION OF FOVEA MUNSON. Give me something quirky and offbeat, but still kid friendly. #MSWL
