I've been seeing more aspec characters in YA, which is great! But now I'd really love to see more in books that decentralize romance. I want more of this in YA in general, but particularly with ace/aro characters. #mswl

Every time I type “bbs” instead of “babies” I’m reminded how badly I want an early 90’s YA novel with a teen running a bulletin board system (BBS) on their computer.

“Who is the audience for dawn of the Internet niche YA-“

Shush! Gimme. #MSWL

Inspired by @FriendZonePod’s Industry Plant episode, @AintTooProud show on The Temptations, and Beyoncé’s forthcoming #Homecoming doc, I’d love a character driven behind-the-music style book. Fiction or non-fiction, YA or adult. #mswl

Ingrid Goes West is a movie I think about a lotttt and I'd love to see some sort of YA project in this same vein. #MSWL

He isn't doing anything illegal, but is it APPROPRIATE? HELL NO. Could you imagine this, but in a small town, where a behavior like rubbing the girl's shoulders or something else could be excused. Or had been so internalized by the town? 3/

All this to say, I am not a fan of abuse books, but this kind of book would fascinate me. Someone from the outside, who sees this, and sees something off and doesn't know what it is, but knows it is wrong. And then has to fit the town's internalized acceptance of it. #MSWL #YA

Right now in young adult historical my #mswl is romance like Suitors and Sabotage and historical fantasy like Enchantée, My Plain Jane, and Jackaby.

"Fluffy YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities)." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

Wowza this is fascinating. Thinking this could work as YA nonfiction! #mswl nytimes.com/2019/04/07/sci…
