Cheryl B. Klein @chavelaqueI first read them in Dell Yearling paperback editions when I was 8 or 9, and I can’t wait to read them to Dash — especially THE SATURDAYS, set in NYC.
And a contemporary MG novel like this, featuring a boisterous & loving POC family, is an eternal #MSWL for me.

From @susanW1F: I adore novels with a sense of mischief, powerful prose/voice, dark in unexpected ways, but never bleak. I love a contemporary, complex family story, or something with a speculative edge - ghosts, folklore, magic, ‘otherness’. Find me here: bit.ly/3dvyqWg
On to @EmF1nn, who's hunting for love stories (platonic/romantic/big messy families); gorgeous writing with page-turning plot; high concept fiction with an arresting premise and characters to do it justice; immersive, cross-genre narrative non-fiction... bit.ly/3bnKerI
Hey #amquerying authors, I’ve got lots of reading time, so send me allllll your VOICEY escapist fic. Book club fic, rom coms (I love the het ones, yes, but dear god someone send me a queer f/f or enby rom com), beach reads, upmarket family drama heavy on sister stories. #MSWL
💞 Family means everything to me and I'm a sucker for stories that feature big, multigenerational, immigrant families. 🎁 Have a story that has a treasure trove of family history? 💫 Bonus points for multilingual households and prose that keeps me up at night. YA or MG. #MSWL
Agents! Would ❤️ to see: historical (1900s), diverse voices, complex female relationships, high society, immigrant stories, suspense, light speculative, campus setting, southern, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia, romcom. All upmarket w/ commercial hook & feminist themes. #mswl
Agented only #MSWL things I want across YA and adult: crossover fantasy (contemporary and not), magical realism, rom coms, rom sads, family stories, witches, vampires
This is weirdly specific (blame my subconscious) but I’d love to see a YA where the MC is dealing with the fallout of a parent’s very public arrest as a serial killer, and the true crime aficionados and podcasters who now hound their family. #MSWL
Send me your fresh, voice-driven MG realistic contemporaries! I’m looking for stories—esp from mariginalized creators—that feature unconventional families, first crushes, community & activism, family secrets, girls dealing w/ unwanted body attention, angry girls, enby MCs. #MSWL
CONTEMPORARY: travel rom-coms, big family cast (related or not), quirky small towns (think Gilmore Girls or Schitt's Creek), Caribbean and archipelago settings, basically Hallmark movies but diverse #mswl
Oh, hello! At long last, my #MSWL page is up! I will try to keep this as up to date as possible. (I also regularly tweet things I'm looking for here.) Check it out:

One of the hardest thing about querying agents is knowing what’s actually a fit for their lists... so I’m excited to share my #MSWL with everyone! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/mega… take a look to see my specific interests and fav reads!
