I’m not much of a horror fan, but it just struck me that I’d love to see a YA along the lines of IT FOLLOWS. Something scary as hell that addresses teen sexuality (but is sex-positive, not moralizing) #mswl

Recently finished watching Love Alarm on Netlix and boooo hissss that ending but also #MSWL, I want a YA in that vein!

“That vein” = exploring the way technology impacts our lives in an interesting new way. If your YA novel could be described as “like Black Mirror but fluffy,” I want to see it.

Finally saw ABOUT TIME this weekend and so loved it. Agents, just a reminder that lightly speculative projects grounded in our world are EXTREMELY my jam. #MSWL

Our whole office has been talking about the Fyre festivals docs and I have a new #mswl: a YA horror/thriller set at a musical festival gone wrong. Give me this book!!!

A #mswl for a future day: angry girls. Give me your righteous, angry girls, and let’s have them burn the world to the ground.

Olympics means Olympian-inspired #MSWL...I want a book about a teenage girl whose mom is her coach a la Mikaela Shiffrin and her mother. Fascinated by that dynamic.

A YA about a weird, immersive summer job & all the relationships that come out of it. Adventureland for teens. #MSWL

I just watched Little Witch Academia & it was my favorite. Badass lil witches learning about magic & how to be friends. MG, I think. #MSWL

Eliza Swift @elizaswift · 12 Sep 2017

A complicated, messy, heartbreaking, hysterical, ultimately loving story about female friendship in YA. #MSWL

Eliza Swift @elizaswift · 12 Sep 2017

A YA about a teen's devotion to a craft (a sport, an instrument, etc) and what that means for the other aspects of their life. #MSWL

Hey book gods (aka agents), @AnnieNybo and I both want to see a cute quinceañera YA. #MSWL

Friday #MSWL: I've been reading a lot of fun books recently. I want to read a YA that's real and gritty and emotionally exhausting.
