What i'm looking for...

At the moment, she is actively looking for Middle Grade novels, strong voices with brave narratives and contemporary and realistic settings, edgy, funny and moving Middle Grade fiction; she loves voice-driven and character-driven narratives, endearing narrators, magical realism and literary fiction. She is also looking for YA fiction featuring LGBTQI story-lines and characters, as well as non-fiction books aimed at children and YA – from memoirs to manuals, popular science and humorous books.
