Whatever the style, Caryn is looking for emotionally deep and powerful voices, great lyrics in a closely drawn narrative, and personalities that will stay with her long after the book is finished.

She is attracted to modern YA and mid-range with a powerful vocals, multi-faceted personalities, sophisticated relations, nice script and a well-developed catch. A great worldview is indispensable, whether it is a space that almost becomes a book personality, or a slight imaginary feature in a singular tale anchored in fact.
She is particularly interested in textbooks for young people dealing with the issues of variety and interrelations. She' d be excited to see more textbooks that investigate a different cultural background and textbooks in which the ethnic nature of the characters is not the subject.
