Iโ€™d love to see a cozy magical MG like A SNICKER OF MAGIC or LOVE SUGAR MAGIC in my inbox. Voicey, elegant magic thatโ€™s simply part of the contemporary world, definitely from marginalized creators. #MSWL

With everything going on, Iโ€™m hungry for comfort reads in the form of heartfelt middle grade contemporaries. Iโ€™d love to see a realistic story laced with hope reminiscent of MY JASPER JUNE, OTHER WORDS FOR HOME, & HURRICANE SEASON, esp from marginalized creators! #MSWL

A YA contemporary that fits on the shelf with FOOLISH HEARTS and LOVE FROM A to Z and WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI and ALWAYS NEVER YOURS and WILD BLUE WONDER, but make it queer. ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆโœจ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #MSWL
