Yes! I would like to see more surreal/sci-fi/folk horror #YA because WILDER GIRLS is bloody awesome. I want more of what Aykut Aydoğdu, who painted the cover & this below, captures in his art: that unique feeling of teenage dread & disquiet. #MSWL

And shoutout to the editor who inspired this one (He knows who he is): A NSYNC Lance Bass Fan YA novel. Not sure what it would look like but We Stan Him. #YA #MSWL I am calling dibs on this one so hard.

And finally my evergreen #MSWL right now: mermaids. Evil mermaids. Magical realism mermaids. 13th Year Mermaids.

And Ren Faire contemporary.

And Spice Girls friendship break-up MG or YA.

Also, talking to a teen last night about roller derby, and realized he was kind of intrigued by it. The ladies dominate this, but would love to see a YA about a teen ragtag roller derby group. #MSWL

I want a YA set in a small village. Not for nothing, my great aunt is the town gossip, and it cracks me up. Imagine trying to live your YA life in that. #MSWL

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · Jul 19

Also really wanting a YA contemporary story that shows teens in juvenile detention or trying to navigate teen life while on probation. #MSWL

FaceApp, 23andMe, etc. stealing your identity and somehow forever altering society is the next YA novel I'd love aka be terrified to read. #mswl

What I really want to see in my inbox, US edition: MG with fantasy elements that isn't straight-up high fantasy; YA that makes me feel the way Sandra Newman's THE HEAVENS did (what do you mean you haven't read it, GO READ IT) #mswl

What I really want to see in my inbox, UK edition: a brilliantly-written YA novel featuring a main character who lives in Northern Ireland and is facing an unwanted pregnancy. #MSWL

Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.
