Dean Lines @deanlinesWhen I was like 14, me and a few mates would “wag” French class and hide out in the soundproof drum room until lunch time. This went on for a few weeks when one day we discovered a “trap door” beneath the carpet tiled floor under the drum kit. We of course opened the trap door.. twitter.com/spur_of/status…
This whole thread is my MG vibe and #MSWL
And my incredibly specific #MSWL: I would love to see a middle grade adventure that pulls off the tone, historical tie-ins, friendship drama, mystery, and overall excitement/escalation of NATIONAL TREASURE.
Jumping on the bandwagon to say: I would love to see more fun, upbeat middle grade focusing on siblings, friendship, crushes, and/or that silly joy of tween schemes. Show me failed matchmaking, plotting that got out of hand, the awkwardness of a friend-breakup. #MSWL
Saadia Faruqi @SaadiaFaruqi@SaraSchon hi there. Did you have any ideas for #MSWL yesterday? Would love to know what you are currently acquiring.
I'm looking for the wide range—funny readers, strong nonfiction, exciting chapter books, and inventive middle grade! #MSWL
