Road Trip Wednesday #95: Adult Characters Who Would Be Cool Teen MCs


Welcome to our 94th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, 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 -- or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.




This Week's Topic:
What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?

Road Trip Song of the Week:
When You're Young" by 3 Doors Down
Kaitlin Ward

Kaitlin Ward is the author of Bleeding Earth, Adaptive Books 2016, and The Farm, coming 2017 from Scholastic.
