Eva Scalzo 🇵🇷 @evascalzoI was diagnosed in 1994, and The Babysitters’ Club was the only reason I knew what diabetes was too. I still want a YA with type I diabetes rep. #mswl twitter.com/mariskreizman/…
Seconded! Diabetes truly is an invisible disease. Though I’d love MG or YA with Type 1 or Type 2... #MSWL
Shira Schindel @Shiras24@leslie_zampetti These ideas are awesome (I'd SO love to read them!), and also, I've yet to see a mainstream YA romance with two MO characters, or Conservative characters, or really almost anything mainstream without a bar/bat mitzvah, inter-faith relationship, or the Holocaust.
I know! Maybe you’re writing something? 😉
I’d love to see contemporary Jewish YA without the b’nei mitzvot or Holocaust or even anti-Semitism. I am up for inter-faith relationships tho - if done in a fresh way. 😊 #MSWL
Leslie Zampetti @leslie_zampetti#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.
Oops! #MSWL Day is tomorrow!
Well, at least I’m on brand. I’m always the early bird! 😊🐥📚

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearnTHIS IS WHERE I GREW UP. THEY BUILT THIS LAKE OVER A FREAKING TOWN AND SOME CEMETERIES. YET EVERY SUMMER MY PARENTS THOUGHT I WAS STRANGE FOR NOT WANTING TO SWIM IN IT.
Also I guess I know what my next WIP should be... pic.twitter.com/Aq7HhHRQmN
#MSWL! 😉📚❤️ Southern gothic MG or YA anyone?
Terrie Wolf @AKA_TerrieCapers! Over the top, I didn’t see that coming, who got away with what? Capers. Think Oceans 11 and Oceans 8, Fun With Dick and Jane, or Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, to name a few. #MSWL
I second Terri’s #MSWL - but for MG and/or YA, pretty please!
