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

I know this is specific but I’d love a contemporary MG or YA where the MC has to wear a back brace bc they have scoliosis, kyphosis, or scoliokyphosis, and has to deal with all the complications it inflicts on socializing and fitting in. This was me growing up. #MSWL

I’m going to put it out there again. I’d really love to see younger YA contemporary that focuses on young teens starting high school for the first time with all of the mixed up feelings that come along with them!

And as always, send me great MG of all genres! #mswl

What I'm currently looking for:
1) Culturally rich MG contemporary that will make me ugly cry.
2) Culturally rich YA fantasy or contemporary with unapologetic female protagonists who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. #MSWL

I’d love to see a YA contemporary featuring body positivity in Asian culture. I know growing up it was the vicious cycle of constantly being told I needed to lose weight while mom and relatives always told me to eat more at mealtimes. Definitely a cultural thing. #mswl

Currently listening to The Last Five Years score. It makes me think I’d really like to see a YA contemporary where two main characters tell the story from different points in time and meet in the middle. That would be really cool. #mswl

An own voice YA contemporary where mental illness is a part of the MC's identity and isn't what drives the conflict of the plot. #MSWL

I'm still waiting for a YA contemporary romance based off of two teens meeting through Pokemon Go. You think I'm kidding but I'm not. #MSWL
