#MSWL Alert: I'd love to see a #MG or #YA with a #climate or #environmental theme, speculative/near-future or contemporary. Bonus if it's #ownvoices from a writer of color or about an under-served community!

This month's #MSWL: modern diaspora communities, ideally #ownvoices, #nf. How does the community stay together? Are there relationships with other diaspora communities--positive or negative? I'm not looking for a memoir, but I do love personal narrative in a nonfiction book.

I'd love something exploring ability/disability. Definitely #OWNVOICES. Non-fiction or fiction but my taste skews more commercial, not literary #mswl
