#MSWL MG with evil geniuses à la Artemis Fowl. Like, it’s great when kids save the world, but I’d love to see them trying to take over the world, too.

But in a way that makes me root for the main character. I want to *want* them to succeed, no matter their goal.

General #MSWL stuff: magic/spells gone wrong, ghosts, resurrections, possessions, the end of the world scenarios, characters who get themselves into weird/messed up situations that push them to their emotional limits, & friendship stories, especially friendships that ended badly.

Agents, send me stories with nonlinear narratives, please! I love the way foreshadowing can be done with non-chronological timelines, and how knowing the ending can make me all the more drawn into the story. #MSWL
