I am capital-L LOVING the YA Highway Road Trip Q this week:
What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?
^ Ned from Pushing Daisies (source)
Oh, Ned, you and your little gift of bringing dead people back to life…
If only you and Charlotte “Chuck” Charles had been able to have a sweet little romance as teens. As adults, you are angsty and heart-breaking and wonderful, but your teen selves??? Gah, I can’t even imagine how wonderfully quirky you would be, baking pies in her aunt’s kitchen while she flitted around outside after honeybees.
And speaking of Ned’s portrayer, Lee Pace, he also played Aaron Tyler (Wonderfalls) and I would not be the least upset to see Aaron pop up in a book.
Smart, neurotic, suspicious, and sharp-witted. Not to mention cute. Yes, please!
