Jumping on the bandwagon to say: I would love to see more fun, upbeat middle grade focusing on siblings, friendship, crushes, and/or that silly joy of tween schemes. Show me failed matchmaking, plotting that got out of hand, the awkwardness of a friend-breakup. #MSWL
Always a sucker for misfit groups in MG or YA. Think ride or die friends, friends who are together because they're all they have, people pushed into situations where they realize, hey, we actually need each other.
If you comp Stranger Things, I may die.
In all ages and genres I am seriously hoping to see more books starring mc's with disabilities. #ownvoices especially encouraged. I want to see stories that show the full range of life and experiences--joy, accomplishments, ambition, sadness, friendship, love. #MSWL
I'm really craving friendship stories. The friends that can speak without words. The cheerleader friends. The group who became friends because they were outsiders. The friends who are fixing their relationship.
Give me sweet but also break my heart??
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixStill really really looking for an updated YA GIRL: INTERRUPTED type story! Powerful, combustible friendships between teen girls, and stories that talk about the weird, emotionally-fraught ups and downs of teen friendships. #MSWL
I am still on the hunt for this project! If you have a book like this, please send it my way! Would love to see some amount of queerness in this story, too. #MSWL
#mswl: give me your early/mid/late twenties coming of age, give me your 'how do I pay bills' and 'what do I do now', give me your friend families, give me your friendship is it's own type of glorious romance, give me your 'how can we grow up together'.
Meredith 🎯 @mere_789@jldallow What are you looking for right now?
Serial killers. Holding out for a child psychopath. Domestic suspense. Thrillers (in adult and YA) . Rom-Coms. Friendship breakups (YA). Male/female platonic relationships (prefer adult, but would look at YA). Otherwise, follow my #MSWL. #askagent
Just finished HELLO GIRLS, and hot damn, can I get a hard #MSWL for badass friends who give a biiiiig middle finger to the patriarchy and choose each other over everything else? A side of murdering abusive men is always welcome on this menu 🤷🏻♀️
