Read the late great Barbara Neely’s BLANCHE ON THE LAM yesterday. So sad we only have 4 of these. I’m going to have to dole them out to myself as treats...

I’d love a contemporary #ownvoices mystery that tells it like it is, just as Ms. Neely did. #MSWL

#MSWL I’d love to see some Latinx/Jewish contemporary YA... Or a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with the protagonists both devout but different religions... Or a great MG mystery that more Mo LeBeau and less Nancy Drew & ClueCrew.

Still seeking that perfect MG mystery! Bonus points for a twist on a classic.

I would ❤️ an MG mystery/ghost story set in Cassadega, FL. #MSWL

I would love a good mystery with a diverse detective that’s not set in another country... #MSWL
