What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? TAKE MY BREATH AWAY by Berlin
On what she’s looking for. And I’m loving this list. I’d be happy to see queries from writers for anything she mentions. Bring it on.
1. Contemporary YA where the heroine is not a victim.
2. Witches, MG or YA, dark or light
3. SF YA
4. Multicultural SF or fantasy
6. Strong novels with gay protagonists
8. Novels with the perfect blend of literary and commercial that will get starred reviews, win awards, and land on the Times list.
Oh that’s not asking for much! I’m getting right on that last one. *grin *Tags: middle grade, young adult
