I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)

Random #MSWL: I'd love a MG that deals explicitly with periods: the pain, the missing school, gym class, worrying about your pants/your chair, all that. I got mine between 5th and 6th grade at Disney World -- DISNEY WORLD -- and it was a game. changer.

Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.

I can only justify rereading RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE so many times, so can someone please send me a YA novel in that vein (alas, I do not acquire NA)? I never want the feeling to end! #MSWL
