About Co-Starring with a Co-Star*

Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you link your blog in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday.

Today's topic: What supporting character from a YA book would you most like to see star in their own novel?

Blame it on the day job, but I couldn't get my head wrapped around it. Thank god Bestie Danielle is chained to her desk as much as me has a desk job like me.

With Danielle on board, it was a matter of figuring out what we would like to see.

With the truth behind Edward's sparkle denied from my editorial department, it was back to the drawing boards. It's worth mentioning that we were still confused on whether the topic was for the character to star in a novel as a spinoff or as a retelling.

Because it's both, we've decided to talk about both. This would be a fantastic time to mention that these conversations are the norm for the two of us. Except we don't have conversation bubbles.(Though as you can see we talk and type all lower case and horrible punctuation.)

With that amazing conversation, I bet you want to know about our spinoffs. It's really hard to escape all the intelluctualism that Danielle and I rock.

Happy with our choices, we were about to move on to some other important topic like lunch. Then this happened.

Lurkdom, it's your turn! What secondary character would you like to see as the star? Also what crazy conversations do you have with your friends?

A big thanks to Bestie Danielle for helping out with today's topic.

* If you came here thinking this was going to be all cinema and TV, I'm sorry. You should still stick around. We have awesome things.
_______ hit of the day: Santa Monica by Everclear


  1. Hmm, that's a tough one! Although, there is a fantastic book that already uses this sort of model-- Capt. Hook by J.V. Hart. Fantastic read! I highly recommend it, and I'm considering re-reading it myself.

  2. Dave the Laugh! Oh, I forgot how much I love him. (He's way better than the Sex God, IMO)
    Y'all are hilarious!

  3. I love how you did this. So fun!

    Wait...who's Dave the Laugh?

  4. The idea of Edward buying out all the body glitter in the store had me rolling around on the floor, laughing. :)

  5. Hah! I love the way you posted your debate. :)

  6. Luna Lovegood! Can you imagine how much wizards brush off as "not real". We miss out on so much because Harry didn't grow up in the wizarding world.

  7. Loved the debate... I so want to read that Edward in the glitter store story.

  8. I love how you did this! Very clever!

  9. Haha! This was fantastic! (I may have to steal--I mean--try this idea. :) )

  10. Ha! very funny. Love the body glitter!

  11. This is great. Um seriously I definitely want to see the scene where Edward buys all the body glitter.
