Some more #nonfiction interests: millennials issues (don't send me books on how we've destroyed things for babyboomers, I honestly don't care), astrology, spirituality not connected to a specific religion, old theaters (I love these), 90's music, anything humor related #MSWL

For #contemporary #YA, smart, humorous, introspective first person is more likely to draw me in, but I can fall in love with a sweet, dreamy voice, too. My tolerance for sap and cliche is pretty low, so be very careful with those. #MSWL

Correction #2: Middle Grade: Humor--if you can make me laugh, I'll sign you up. Literary: I've never had a Newbery-winning client and I want one. Adventure stories, grounded fantasy (but not epic fantasy), sci-fi. #ownvoices for sure. Artists, MG graphic novels! #MSWL
YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.
Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.
