Within the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL

The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)

I badly want to see more first or second gen immigrant stories and ones that reflect the multi-generational experience in mg and YA. I want to read about others experiences and hopefully, see my own reflected as well. #MSWL

Middle grade stories that dig into the deeper questions like A WRINKLE IN TIME and THE GIVER. #MSWL (2/3)

And since I am particularly craving MG, I'll include some of my most desired elements today. If you have these, do send them!

Creepy or spooky stories that are still age-appropriate like CORALINE. #MSWL (1/3)

Anything mg or YA that can be comped to AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER, especially if it heals my poor Zutara-shipping heart. Most of all, I love the character interactions in ATLB, the fully-realized sweetness and depth. Plus the unique world! #MSWL

Please write me a MG or YA inspired by this:… #MSWL Can be sent any time. Bonus points for magical realism or fantasy
