I have a big time #MSWL for a story like Never Have I Ever! There’s just so much to love about this show. It’s everything I’ve wanted and more in a coming of age comedy for teens. Also, I wish I had a Paxton Hall-Yoshida when I was in high school. 😍
I’ve worked on a lot of books that explore identity and culture bc I feel a personal connection to such stories. They’ll always have a soft spot in my heart. I’ll continue to work on them. But I also love books with commercial hooks that are light and fun. Please send! #mswl
I’m watching a crazy K-drama called Angry Mom where a very young looking mom disguises herself as a high school student at her daughter’s high school to figure who has been bullying her daughter. It’s freaking nuts and amazing. I don’t do many adult novels, but #MSWL please.
I’d love a YA/MG that explores living with OCD, specifically dermatillomania (what I suffer from) or trichotillomania. Often times when people think of OCD, they tend to think of people who clean obsessively or fixate on numbers. There’s also the kind that hurts physically #MSWL
One evergreen reminder about #MSWL is that even though it’s a great tool for agents and queriers, you don’t have to force fit your project into our requests. It’s great if you do have something that matches, but it’s okay if it doesn’t. Just stay true to what you wrote!
I'd love a contemporary YA that explores diaspora teens and their complicated family bonds while growing up between cultures, a la Lulu Wang's The Farewell. Hits hard at the issues, while still being able to punch things up with humor and wit. #mswl
There’s a K-drama called Revenge Note (I know it’s kind of sounds like Death Note). It’s about a teen who has an app called Revenge Note that appears on her phone one day. You can enter the name of someone you want to take revenge on. I want this in a YA!!! #mswl
