literary agent at @jillgrinberglit | YA author of IMMACULATE, TRANSCENDENT, and THE UNDOING OF THISTLE TATE (july 2019)
i'm sure i'm forgetting at least a thousand other things i'd like to see, and i'm always up for being surprised with a project that was never on my wishlist radar. at the end of the day it's all about voice. a magic kind of chemistry you can't explain. so please: send away! #MSWL
there's always room for more MG and picture books on my list, too. contemporary, fantasy, somewhere in between. lots of humor, lots of heart. those MG years are weird, funny, sad, hard, beautiful, and i want to feel alllll of it. take me back. (for better or for worse) #MSWL
i'm also here for smart rom coms and women's fiction, bright and joyful and swoony and fresh. unexpected love that comes in all shapes and sizes. real people, real dilemmas, real dreams. i just devoured RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE and oh my god, yes, everything about that book. #MSWL
send me a dark, twisty, literary thriller, YA or adult - a complicated narrator that i hate to love or love to hate. i'm a gigantic kate morton fan and would l-o-v-e that kind of dual timeline sweeping generational mystery. please. seriously. PLEASE. #MSWL
i'm a sucker for a good family story, a good friendship story, and of course some good romance, too, but it's okay if that's not front and center. i didn't date until i was in college, so i know there's more to being a teen than romance! #MSWL
Katelyn Detweiler @katedetweileri'm terrible at #MSWL because i usually don't know what i'm looking for until it lands in my inbox and i start reading and suddenly i'm halfway through and three hours have magically disappeared...
but to try and be at least remotely helpful (!) i'm always on the lookout for new YA of all stripes, though i have a forever love of contemporary - a fresh take on an every day idea, a twist i haven't seen before, a tearjerker (ideally of the happy kind, but i'll take both) #MSWL
