Hi #MSWL day! I’m actively looking for more middle grade and young adult, as well as graphic novels and picture books. Here are a few things I’m especially eager to find in my inbox (thread):

Forever and always looking for stories that have nerdy, science-driven characters, especially if it is written by a scientist! #PB #MG #YA #scicomm #MSWL

Eager to find a smart and unique fiction or nonfiction #PB or #graphicnovel that discusses the importance of taking care of the environment and our oceans. #MSWL

Like many astronauts, Kalpana Chawla was one of my idols growing up. I would love to find a #kidlit story about her in some way or form. #MSWL #PB #MG
β€œPeople remember Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian woman in space”

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
