In YA, contemporary realistic with a voice that nails emotion, subtlety, and has a specificity to it. A book only that author could do #MSWL

I'm still looking for a classic, heart-wrenching MG animal story, like Because of Winn Dixie or Pax. #MSWL

YA realistic fiction that feels true-to-life. Realistic friends and esp. realistic romance. Simon Vs. Homosapiens Agenda, for ex. #MSWL

It really can't be underestimated how much I want books featuring dogs in big and small ways (big and small dogs, too). Happy or sad. #MSWL

More than anything, looking for something I've never seen before: unique structure, weird story, so different it's not for everyone. #MSWL

Shonda Rhimes-esque YA--high-stakes, dramatic, addictive storytelling. #MSWL
