Road Trip Wednesday #99: Make Ron a STAR

It's Ginger time. (credit)
Welcome to our 99th (omg!) 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 supporting character from a YA book would you most like to see star in their own novel?

I believe my opinion has been made clear.
