Road Trip Wednesday #15: The Next Big Thing in YA

Welcome to our 15th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the question on your own blog and leave a link in the comments. We'll be adding our own links here throughout the day!

Topic #15: What's the Next Big Thing in YA?

Kristin M: "Let's go beyond that and imagine what books will be like in 2050..."

Kaitlin: "College kids should have a place on shelves too..."

Lee: "I'd like to see unusual creatures..."

Kristin O: "Sexy, curvy, stainless steel robots..."

Michelle: "Sock monkeys..."

Leila: "I would be an appallingly bad fortune teller..."

Kate: "I just pull up this tweet from Jennifer Laughran, and it makes me feel better..."

Amanda: "The epic love story, Starfish-Crossed Lovers..."

Road Trip Song of the Week:
"Highway To Hell" by AC/DC

February 10th's topic: What's your favorite display of affection in a YA?
(This can be of any sort--romantic, friendship, family, etc)
