YA historical fiction set in the 1950s-70s, where the story offers insight/parallels to contemporary culture #MSWL

New takes on myths and fairy tales from non-western cultures #MSWL

Magical realism in MG and YA, especially where the magic is tied to the setting or the season. Place as character is a fav story element for me #MSWL

PS, I have a special soft spot for fake dating turned romance (yes, just like anyone else who watched and loved #ToAllTheBoys 1-6 times recently! But also, remember the Debra Messing classic The Wedding Date? 😍) #MSWL

I know high school girls can be mean, but I want a contemp YA that shows how important & life-affirming female friendship can be, too #MSWL
