Road Trip Wednesday: Superlative

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: What yearbook “most” category (also known as superlatives) would your character win?

I’m pulling out the double post on all of you, because we have a surprise mid-afternoon Road Trip Wednesday to join in on!

As for which superlative my characters would win…

I think Calanthe would win Most Likely to Succeed, because while she initially comes across as very reserved, a lot of it is an act to fit in with her society’s expectations of her, and it masks a very determined interior. Whatever she sets her mind to, she’s going to accomplish.

Alex, the other MC and narrator in Book 2, would win Most Courageous, even if she wouldn’t ever think she deserves it. A huge part of Alex’s journey in Books 2 and 3 will be overcoming her shyness and fear to kick some major butt.

Which superlatives would your characters win?

  1. After reading about SHARDS OF MEMORY, I can understand how Calanthe would be under a lot of pressure to live up to expectations. "What she sets her mind to…" is nicely vague–succeed at living up to those expectations, or succeed at breaking free of them…? 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing your superlatives. It must have been easier to think of Calanthe's because that story is already finished. I also really liked how you describe Alex's development from shy to kick butt. Great job!

  3. I like the sound of Calanthe because she doesn't sound like your typical shy girl. She's quiet and reserved but mentally she's strong and determined to get where she wants. There is a confidence in her that she's hiding for the public. At least that's the impression I'm getting from her. 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing, Steph. I think it sounds like Calanthe is awesome in the rewrites (oh the FP version I read ages ago). Strong and fierce.My MC would win "most likely to go to an Ivy league school"….at least BEFORE the major things in my novel happen. 😉
