So, thanks to a prompt from the YA Misfits I thought about what would be on my wish-list if I were an agent.
You ready for this?!?
I would LOVE:
YA Folklore/Mythology re-tellings and I have a soft spot for Fairy Tales (re-tellings AND original ones)
YA Contemporary that will make me cry like I've never cried before and/or make me think. A lot.
YA Monster story. Points if it involves the Loch Ness monster. (See what I would NOT love for stipulations).
YA Agatha Christie-esque mystery - the world needs more of those!
YAThriller/Actioner. Points if it also happens to be Fantasy or Sci-Fi.
YA Contemporary with dark humor. Like, really dark.
YA Multicultural - points if it explores issues of race, racial identity, etc
I would NOT love:
Ze vampires. Zey are overdone.
Same with ze werewolves.
