YA Road Trip: Adult Characters to YA

Hello! This one is a little late, but I had riding-on-the-back-of-a-motorcycle-with-a-cute-boy writing to do. I'm in the editing process and after an amazing date and evening motorcycle ride with my hubby last night, I decided to put Allura on the back of a bike too, clutching onto David. Yah, she liked it.


It's Road Trip Wednesday over on YA Highway and today they asked:

This Week's Topic:
What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?
 It took me maybe a few seconds before I had my answer. The answer to everything. If you asked me what my favorite show ever is, this would be the answer. If you asked me my favorite vampire story, this would be it. If you asked me which amazing show was canceled and totally didn't deserve to be, I'd answer MOONLIGHT. 


Beth Turner from Moonlight as herself in a YA story, would be great. Moonlight is about a vampire who works as a P.I. When Beth Turner was a little girl, she was kidnapped by a crazy vampire lady and Mick (the vampire P.I) saved her. Now she's an adult woman and a journalist who through an article comes into contact with Mick. Sparks fly between them throughout the show and flashbacks of Mick saving her come until she realizes why she's so drawn to him. Her story as a teenager who is drawn to vampires but doesn't know why would be pretty fun. :)  

So what do you think? If you could see an adult character as a teenager in a story, who would it be?


  1. I have never heard of this. Sounds fun, though. To Google!

  2. This was SUCH a good show and it's terrible that it got cancelled. I loved both of these characters so much. Good choice!

  3. I remember seeing adverts for that show a few years ago. Was it cancelled? (Never mind, just read the post above.) You've made it sound really good though! Also, just wanted to let you know I've given you a blog award so come see! :)

  4. Ah, yes Crystal, you can get it on Netflix to watch. :)

    Jaime, so then you completely understand my obsession.

    Charlotte, thanks! I'll be right over!

  5. How about Tris' mom from Divergent. I want to know what happened to her, and it was never explained in Book 1.

  6. Now I haven't read that one yet. It's on my list though. :)
