Wondering if one of you fine and knowledgable folks might be able to tell me what genre is being referenced with the abbreviation 'MG'?

Should be "middle grade" which (I think) is grades 5-8 in the US school system.

Thank you both so much! I knew someone here would know the answer.

I always see it paired up (on Twitter author profiles) with YA, Fantasy, SciFi, etc. but couldn't imagine what MG would be.

Ha, Phillip--that might be what was tripping me up.
My dad was a sports car enthusiast and we had a few MGs when I was growing up. In fact, Dad's retirement project was to build (restore?) a 'Spridget'.

It's also a high ranking military officer grade. Applicable to several genres.

No--the Spridget Dad built was a combo car, with parts from a Sprite and a Midget. There were other Spridgets around here, back in his days of local races. A couple of the guys in his club had them, that's how he was inspired to build one himself some 30 odd years later.
