i'm looking for a YA that gives me the same feeling i get when tom holland lifts up his arms and is drenched in water at the exact moment rihanna sings "gonna let the rain fall" (1:29 for reference). in other words, total joy.

where is my YA indiana jones re-telling that has our mc taking cultural artifacts back from museums and returning them to their countries of origin? minus nazis, plus more kissing #mswl

agent friends! watching bong joon ho make history last night 🇰🇷🥳💕 has restored my faith in the power of creativity

so here is my 2020 YA #mswl. let's make stories together & continue to strive towards a better world that offers mirrors, windows, and doors to all young people

after a full week of being in bed with a fever, cough, body aches, and chest pains i'm finally coming out in the other side and ready to do something other than watch the office...

agents, check out my #mswl and ✨PLEASE✨send me those YA submissions. i am R E A D Y to read.

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

i would LOVE to see stories about immigrant communities - especially ones with a multi-generational family angle in the vein of mitali perkins' YOU BRING THE DISTANT NEAR #mswl

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

i also need more contemporary fantasy that draws from diverse folklore! anything in the vein of daniel josé older's SHADOWSHAPER or kat cho's WICKED FOX #mswl

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

i'm desperate for commercial, soap-y, contemporary YA that is both highly aspirational and has high emotional stakes. think anything from casey mcquiston's RED WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE to jennifer lynn barnes' THE FIXER #mswl

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

DIVERSE LOVE STORIES, DIVERSE ROM COMS, DIVERSE ROM DRAMS! 💕💕💕 please send me anything in the vein of jenny han's TATBLIB, sandhya menon's WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, maurene goo's THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL, and gloria chao's AMERICAN PANDA #mswl

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

in general, would love more contemporary YA that takes place outside the U.S. #mswl

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

i am forever looking for YA written by korean/korean american authors that feature korean/korean american characters - especially contemporary stories that take place in korea 🇰🇷🇰🇷🇰🇷 #mswl

Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader · Feb 10

first and always, i am looking for YA by underrepresented creators, featuring underrepresented characters - especially commercial, contemporary fiction that leads with joy #mswl
