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 josΓ© 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! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• 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

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 πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡· #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

agent friends! watching bong joon ho make history last night πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ₯³πŸ’• 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
