YA: I'd love more light, funny YA featuring diverse characters, including rom-coms. (Note though that a rom-com would need deeper threads, more to the plot than romance.) We'd also love more on the edges of YA--younger characters just entering HS, or older ones starting college.

Specifically, I'd love some regional crime or some small-town mysteries. I'd also love to see some diversity in my detectives (and as much as I love police procedural, I'd also be keen to read some non-police detective characters!) #mswl

Film CODA hit all the marks for a sublime story: representation, socio-economic diversity, the many faces of love, first kiss, and, of course, music. Then there's that perfect title and unspeakable layers of language here. Literally. #storyswoon #mswl #kidlit #amquerying

Diverse, IR romances and romcoms:

I want both MCs to be POC and the relationship to be multi-cultural &/or multi-ethnic pls! IR can exclude WASP ppl.

For this think Someone Great, Lovebirds, Photograph, Talia Hilbert, Jasmine Guillory, Honey Girl

All-Age Category #MSWL wants
☑️ BIPOC
☑️ Queer/Trans
☑️ ND
☑️ Disability
☑️ Religions & spiritual beliefs that are underrepresented in publishing
☑️ Intersectionality

Basically: The world we live in is diverse. Books written for kids in the 21st century should reflect that.

#MSWL For YA, I’d love to see kind of edgy contemporary and thrillers that represent some of that diversity mentioned above. One specific thing I’d ~love is a story about a teenage activist who stands for something they believe in, perhaps despite being underestimated.
