I get a tonne of queries for YA novels that feature characters who are in, or have just gotten out of, some kind of interaction with the prison industrial complex (i.e., juvenile detention). I would LOVE to see a book like this written by someone with lived experience. #MSWL

4/ Only 26% of my list is KidLit of ANY kind. I'm super picky about what I take on, but I represent PB, chapter, MG, and YA, and would love to see more voicey, character-driven stories in all of these categories in my inbox in the new year.

Okay! One more to close out the night, and this one is YA horror. This one I love because it's definitely 1, Welcome to Night Vale vibes, which is completely #MSWL for me. And 2, it makes me LAUGH. My sense of humour is... a little shy... but this book nails it.
