For #MG, I’m really picky about voice because I think it’s so hard! I’m looking for a big heart without being saccharine, friendship-centered contemporary, and small adventures that feel big to them like Stand By Me. #MSWL
Related to the above, contemporary teens that work! Love stories in industrial fridges while waitressing, finding friends at the boardwalk surf shop, finding yourself at the water park (like one of my faves, the Way Way Back) #MSWL
27. UNDEAD GIRL GANG by @ms_lilyanderson
I LOVE this book. It’s funny, it’s witchy, it has teeth—and it’s also about friendship 💜 The vibes are just perfect.
(Ahem #MSWL for anything comped to this book for those reasons)
In line with the last tweet, please send your manuscripts about groups of friends, and bonus points if it happens over one night or one weekend. Something like a high school gen's The Big Chill energy. #MSWL
