My Manuscript Wish List

Talia Benamy, Penguin Random House

I’m looking mainly for YA and middle-grade books with strong voices and strong protagonists. I’m looking for realistic fiction and historical fiction, and I particularly love strong female characters (especially when they’re breaking gender stereotypes and/or sticking up for themselves in some fantastic way). My tastes run toward the literary side, though I definitely like books that are accessible and have some commercial appeal, and I love books that cause readers to learn something new or think about something in a new light. I’m particularly interested in books that have global-issue significance (i.e. that are related to what’s going on in the world today in some way), and my wish list includes books that somehow relate to Jewish themes or politics. I’d also be thrilled to edit some really quality nonfiction for kids.
