BuzzFeed News @BuzzFeedNews

Kids around the US are ditching school on Friday to call out adults for not doing enough on climate change buzzfeednews.com/article/zahrah…

β€œWhen you don't have anything other than your voice, you have to use it,” Haven Coleman, a 12-year-old striker in Denver, Colorado. β€œWe have to fight for our future because adults aren't doing anything.”

These kids are incredible. I'd love to find a story with this voice. #MSWL

I follow so many incredible bakers on Instagram because I'm obsessed w/ fancy, colorful, and quirky cakes, and it's making me crave a contemporary #YA or #MG featuring a mc who has a passion for baking. Bonus points if it includes a fluffy romance or baking competition! πŸŽ‚ #MSWL

Specifically, I’d love a contemporary #YA set in Prague (modern day or historical). Bonus points if it includes a love story as beautiful as the astronomical clock tower. #MSWL

I’d love to find more #kidlit stories written by or about #scientists in some way! I want to hear about #STEM leaders who have paved paths (Annie Jump Cannon! Mary Anning! Lise Meitner!) #MSWL

Super specific #MSWL: I'd love to find a fun, high-stakes contemporary #MG or #YA that takes place before or during a hackathon! Less specific: If you have a #kidlit story with witty & tech-savvy characters, please query me. πŸ€“

With the #Olympics on my mind, I'd love to find a #PB, #MG, or #YA book about #figureskating. I don’t want the stereotypical "mean girl" skater. Show me the skater who stays after hours, who has a million bruises from trying to nail a jump, who uses the ice as a canvas. #MSWL
