I'd also like a MG realistic/contemporary series. Something like Jason Reynold's TRACK series. I'd also be super excited to find brilliant literary standalone in MG. Something like WHEN YOU REACH ME or THE THING ABOUT LUCK. #mswl
I'm also searching for a MG series: something big & fun! It could be set in our world or a secondary world fantasy. I'd love it to be fun & perhaps funny. Ideally it has a high concept, but most important to me is that it has that page-turning quality & irresistible voice. #mswl
