I am heading into BEA today. Excuse the lazy post but BEA week is always crazy. What are the ARCs you most want to see?
I’ve already read MATCHED, which is a dystopian book that went to auction with seven publishers bidding. What are the other hot reader books you want to know about?

Hey writers! I know that writing and publishing can be confusing. Not only do you have to hone your writing craft in today’s market, you’ve also got to become savvy about the business end of things. I’d love to answer any questions you have. Please remember, anything you send can be featured on the site.
Just a note: I will only answer general questions about the craft of writing, agents, editors or publishing. Do not ask for feedback or critique, please. Also, please keep your questions to a reasonable length.
My Manuscript Wish List
Ask and you shall receive. I hope. I’d love to represent the following:
YA thriller with lots of true twists and suspense (I can count on one hand the submissions that have actually made me gasp)
Contemporary realism with either the voice of John Green, the character depth of Sara Zarr or the emotional appeal of Sarah Dessen…or all three in one! (Hint hint)
Really edgy, dark YA with a real voice to match, though no edgy for edginess’ sake and no voices that are sarcastic just because, please
Accessible but immersive MG or YA fantasy like Dianna Wynne Jones or Kristin Cashore
High concept YA like HUNGER GAMES or BEFORE I FALL
Psychologically devastating horror in the style of ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD
YA “issue novel” like WINTERGIRLS
Intellectual dystopian YA that’s a little too close to home like FEED
Incredible MG voice like LOVE, AUBREY or funny and classic MG like HOLES…or both in one book!
Very important: Please query me through agency channels, not with my kidlit.com email address. Thanks!
