What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?
Thinking about this made me realize that most of my very fave characters are either teens or spend some of the story as a teen. Eventually one sprung (ie crept painfully slowly) to mind.
He's ageless in an ageless book. He has immense power and wisdom and an aura of authority. seeing him as a teen, perhaps uncertain, perhaps going through the struggles that would make him so awe inspiring when we meet him would be so interesting.
I'm talking about Lord of The Rings and I'm talking about Gandalf.
Imagine a YA book about Gandalf? I'd read it!
While I'm on LOTR i think Aragorn could be rather interesting too.
What about you?
