After spending the summer swooning over Jasmine Guillory novels, I'm excited to expand my #MSWL to include contemporary romances in the YA space! Looking for fresh, substantive stories with a great hook and stand-out voice that pull at the heartstrings.

I've read two vivid, poignant, magical middle grades this week, about kids searching for community who confront their fears and find strength and a deeper sense of self on the other side, that have moved me to tears. More, please! #MSWL

I would love to read a YA contemporary with an incredibly strong friendship, a la Amy and Molly in BOOKSMART. Bonus points if the conflict does NOT stem from romance/love interest complications (between the friends or another character)! #MSWL

"Kill your darlings," but make it a suspenseful YA with a heart-stopping twist. #MSWL

I just finished rewatching Avatar: The Last Airbender (A PERFECT SERIES), and would love to see an MG with similar humor/stakes! #MSWL

I'd sell my soul at the crossroads for a Southern Gothic magic-infused MG/YA novel. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL day! Here's a link to my MSWL profile with some notes on what I'm looking for (friendly reminder that HarperCollins doesn't accept unagented submissions, so please, agents only!): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara…

And I'll thread a few more things I'd love to see here!

Listened to Preservation Hall Jazz Band this morning and started missing New Orleans. Would love to read something set in the Big Easy! Bonus points if jazz, ghosts, and/or beignets are involved. #MSWL
