I would love a MG or YA about life after recovering from illness like ALEXA AND KATIE on Netflix or Barbara Deeโ€™s HALFWAY NORMAL #MSWL

Am I months behind on submissions? Yes. Will that prevent me from asking for more? NOPE!

Anyone have a young, funny YA to send my way? Think Meg Cabot with a little heft. #mswl

This weekend I:

-watched Someone Great
-finished Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
-caught up on Jane the Virgin

And now Iโ€™m just wondering where a girl can get YA versions of every single one of these??#MSWL

Iโ€™m in the mood for a thoughtful and emotional yet still funny YA to hit my inbox. #MSWL

Reminder that Iโ€™d love a YA about a white-passing character and the social/political/personal issues or benefits that come about because of their looks #mswl

Family drama is the weirdest drama. Give me a middle grade with a family like the Belchers on Bob's Burgers and/or a YA with one like the Bluths on Arrested Development. #MSWL

I know it was originally a graphic novel, but still: Give me Netflix's "The End of the F***ing World" as a YA and I will love you forever #MSWL

I was psych minor before I learned I had to take stats. Give me a psychological YA that I can analyze for days #MSWL

#MSWL #YA that deals w/ the racial/cultural/social implications of "passing" as white when the character identifies as otherwise
