When I was a kid, I had to change elementary schools four times across different countries and states. It was difficult for me to make friends and adjust every time. I’m sure a lot of children go through this, and it’s hard because they never have control in these situations.

Often times parents have to move for work or family dynamics change in a way that requires them to be uprooted from familiar places. So I think it’d be great to see more coming-of-age MG stories about transient children, especially ones with diaspora backgrounds. #MSWL

When are we getting a Big Hero 6 sequel? Also, I’d really love a MG in this vein! Group of misfit kids with skills, banning together to stop the world from being destroyed — all with an adorable robot friend in tow! #mswl

I’m in the mood for a good heist story. YA or MG. Bonus points if it’s an all women crew. #MSWL

- Graphic novels by author/illustrators.
- More children’s MG and YA nonfiction, everything ranging from memoir to platform nonfiction.

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

I'm really on the look out for fun middle grade of all varieties. Bonus points if there's a lot of humor and a sibling/best friend rivalry. #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
