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

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

I would love a feminist-as-hell YA about a coven of witches. I can imagine a bunch of awesome interpretations of this setup. #MSWL

Always looking for a YA with a smart, unique structure, a la 500 Days of Summer, The Last Five Years, or The Lover’s Dictionary #MSWL

#MSWL a YA--historical or contemp--with a setting that's a character in its own right & a twist of something darkly magical/darkly strange

#MSWL A YA like Jane the Virgin in that it follows a tight-knit multi generational family, diverse cast of characters, warm & full of heart
