Welcome to our 141st 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 is: What music has been your summer soundtrack?

Road Trip Song of the Week:  "Afraid of Summer" - Lost Lander

Next week's topic: In honor of the end of the Olympics, share your favorite sports book
