Road Trip Wednesday #48: If You Don't Have Rum or Jack Sparrow . . .

Welcome to our 48th 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 prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
You're packing for a month on a deserted island. What, as a reader and writer, must be in your backpack?

Emilia: "Also, a mini-battleaxe. Just in case..."

Michelle: "Would read these drunk on liberal amounts of rum..."

Kristin: "So after I've stuffed in a couple bathing suits (never mind, deserted island, after all). . ."

Kirsten: "the odds of painting a face on a washed-up volleyball for company might be uncomfortably high..."

Kate: "I may have over packed a little."

Kaitlin: "I do not have the complexion for a desert island..."

Road Trip Song of the Week:

Next week's topic (in honor of a special giveaway!!!):
Who did you want to be like in high school?

    Too many to list, I think. Aside from Finnick. He's an obvious choice to pack in there...
