I'd love to see MG books about growing up along the lines of Turning Red, or a layered family story like Encanto — contemporary or with a magical element! #MSWL

For Middle Grade, I'm looking for voicey books with a lot of heart, and primarily contemporary stories. I'm open to books in verse as well as prose.

These are some of my favorite recent MG books. #MSWL

More in fiction: joyous LGBTQ+ characters. Contemporary, literary takes on the Western that critique genre tropes. Speculative/magical realism elements that are grounded in the “real” world (think Nothing To See Here, The Pisces)

In YA I’m looking for contemporary from underrepresented voices, grounded fantasy/horror/magical realism – always stories that have an engaging commercial plot, and deeper themes #MSWL #YA

I’m particularly eager for MG – contemporary stories, stories with a dash of magic, and more literary fantasy (the sort of books that are magical for kids and their adults) #MSWL #MG

Sweeping multi-generational family saga set in another country with an empowered heroine - exploring themes of cultural identity, family conflict, history and motherhood. Would love a modern spin on it either through gender or contemporary themes #MSWL

Lots of typos hahah But look, I am not a Nice Girl and I’m wild and I’m black and viet and queer and never had to be shy about it and that’s what the hell I want to see in contemporary stories. I just want queer kids being messy without apology or hesitation #mswl

#MSWL while I absolutely love middle grade horror and dark fantasy, I'm seeing A LOT of it in queries. Would love to see some variety! Sci-fi, fairytale retellings, contemporary, something tragic, joyful stories, series oriented, adventure, etc

YA:
- Contemp Romance w/ messy relationships like Who I Was With Her or Only Mostly Devastated.
- SciFi where teens are in charge. Add a queer romance to the story, and you're golden. Think The Darkness Outside Us.
-Horror, horror, horror! Creepy, gory, scary AF! (3/6) #mswl

MG across the board: Heartwarming & funny contemporary, mysteries, humor, horror, adventure, or some blend of all those. Touches of magic.
