#MSWL - Smart, commercial YA thrillers & mysteries! Think Tiffany Jackson, Karen McManus, E. Lockhart. Also, YA horror! I’d love something like MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, with a good speculative twist.

Also on my #mswl always is YA contemporary, including mysteries, thrillers, and contemporary with a touch of magic or a speculative element. I particularly love grounded stories with magic such as THE RAVEN BOYS.

#mswl - YA thrillers and mysteries. If you comp to ONE OF US IS LYING, MONDAY'S NOT COMING, or SADIE, please -- query me!

I loved SADIE too because I love a good mystery, where you read on because you have to figure out not just what is GOING to happen but also what already DID happen. #mswl

#mswl 2019: Smart middle grade mysteries like THE LONDON EYE MYSTERY or WHEN YOU REACH ME, or with a ghostly bent like Karen Strong's upcoming JUST SOUTH OF HOME. (9/13)

#mswl 2019: A great historical mystery with mythology and magic such as SERAFINA AND THE BLACK COAT (7/13)

Things I'd be particularly excited to find in #DVPit today: #ownvoices stories; MG mysteries; MG contemp; YA suspense; (1/?) #mswl

#mswl -- MG mysteries with heart, where setting is a character, like THREE TIMES LUCKY, THE LONDON EYE MYSTERY, WHEN YOU REACH ME.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 14 Jun 2016

#mswl - heartfelt MG mysteries -- contemp realistic, historical, supernatural/ghostly mysteries, anything -- with great pacing & characters.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 11 Mar 2016

In MG, I'd fall over myself to get to something like THE LONDON EYE MYSTERY or WHEN YOU REACH ME. #mswl #askagent
