Patricia Nelson @patricianelsHungry for YA contemporary with a strong, jump-off-the-page voice & a fresh perspective that makes me cry or laugh out loud. Or both! #mswl
Literally always! #mswl
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinWhich reminds me... bring me ALL your f/f YA romance and bi MCs! (And tween girls discovering first crushes on girls, too!) #MSWL twitter.com/MissDahlELama/…
I am so here for fun, funny, light-hearted romcoms with girls crushing on girls, for fantasy, for high concepts... you get the idea #MSWL
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELama@findmereading @ms_lilyanderson Part of that is what the f/f stories *are*. We're getting great and critically lauded ones but still by and large Serious Contemp.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock#MSWL I'm always up for a good YA Shakespeare adaptation. Not just the tragedies, either. Comedies, even histories are good.
This tends to result in so much witty banter, which I am HERE FOR. Seconded. #MSWL
Tiffany Liao @Tiff_LiaoMy Friday #mswl: a story with an "Arrival"-like twist that unfurls across many layers rather than pulls the rug out from under you
Laura Crockett ☕️ @LECrockettI'd love more friendship, summery YA to hit my inbox. Think Jenny Han, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Robin Constantine, Dessen, Rowell, Matson #mswl
YA BFFs are always on my #MSWL. Friendships forged between teen girls are so powerful, complex, and fun.
Brooks Sherman @byobrooksMy fave recent middle-grade read was @AdamGidwitz's THE INQUISITOR'S TALE: fascinating historical setting, innovative narrative voice! #mswl
Peter Knapp @petejknapp#MSWL - realistic middle grade; bonus points for bittersweet stories, ones that make you laugh & cry & laugh & cry. petejknapp.com/post/155643281… pic.twitter.com/n075lVYYAh
