I'm still looking for my YA mystery that reads like Brick - bonus points if the protagonist is LGBTQ+ ! #MSWL

I’m half-Peruvian and would love to represent more children’s and YA authors and illustrators of Peruvian heritage—and Peruvians who live in Peru are great too! Does anyone know any Peruvian artists in instagram I can check out? #MSWL

A random #mswl in advance of our #AskUpstart AMA on Tuesday: I'd love to see a modern day YA reboot of The Legend of Billie Jean. #fairisfair

I just want a book about the undead / death subversion that’s exclusively Latinx based, is that so much to ask #MSWL #YA

Am reading Annihilation and now I kinda want a weird nature YA #mswl

I'm still looking for this BTW. Atmospheric, creepy, invasive nature. Not quite right flora fauna. The feeling of something unnerving, watching you from the forest. I love settings that feel like characters, as if they have a motive. #MSWL

Finally, I'm just always looking for really strong voices and strong friendships in both MG and YA. I want those friendships I can root for. #MSWL

On a totally different note, I'd love to see a contemporary YA with a diverse cast of teen activists standing up for what they believe in. #MSWL

You know what I haven’t been seeing much in my inbox? YA horror. I’m craving some creepy and haunting YA horror that’ll keep me up at night. #MSWL

Joker Movie @jokermovie

Put on a happy face. #JokerMovie - in theaters October 4. pic.twitter.com/TxF3Jqxjjr

This is the kind of villain as protagonist origin story i want in YA #MSWL. I might be too scared to watch the movie though, but damn do I relate to Joker now.

I never went to prom because I grew up Orthodox. But my BFF and I used to try on all the prom dresses at Marshalls. Can I get this as a YA book please? #MSWL #YAGoesToProm

This year’s #BCBF2019 is inspiring! I’d love to find more great voice-led fiction, MG or YA, that is funny & warm & brilliant! Contemporary, maybe with a touch of magic. If you’re writing something that fits the bill, please send it my way. Oh, & graphic novels too please! #MSWL

In YA, I’d love to see more high concept coming of age stories: self-contained conflicts where teens learn about themselves against the odds: Magical realism; contemporary fairies; realistic YA mysteries or thrillers with a sense of place #mswl
