#MSWL for MG
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.
Alyza Liu @alyzaliui can’t believe i forgot to say—in these most autumnal of falls, i’d love to acquire a #middlegrade or #graphicnovel with strong “over the garden wall” vibes 💀🍁🌕
Amanda Isabel Ramirez (ง'̀-'́)ง @AmandaIsA_RamI am just a girl, standing in front of the internet, begging for a young #YA / upper #MG about a #Latinx girl who has to choose between a quinceañera and a sweet sixteen because Americanization™️ and all the cultural / generational drama that ensues #MSWL
#MSWL yes please
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
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
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 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
