Alex Arnold is an editor at Katherine Tegen Books, acquiring middle grade and YA. She works with authors like Kali Wallace, Brittany Cavallaro, Terra Elan McVoy, Michelle Andreani and Mindi Scott, and Corey Ann Haydu. She is always on the lookout for diverse, authentic voices, characters that could step off the page, and atmospheric settings that make her feel transported. She would especially love to find a YA with a unique structure or narrative device (think The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak or The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan); a feminist fairytale or fable retelling in MG or YA; and historical fiction featuring diverse and underrepresented perspectives. Particular interests and soft spots include baseball, dogs, dark family magic, wry humor, and strong female friendship. You can find her on Twitter (@alexyarnold), and she keeps her wish list updated on Tumblr.
