RTW- Grown ups

This week's question from YA Highway is:

What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?

I think Liz Lemon from 30 Rock would make a great character in a YA book.


She's funny and nerdy.
Since I work in theater with actors I sometimes feel like I relate to Liz Lemon. I think a teenage Liz Lemon would be hilarious.

What about you? What adult character do you want to see as a teenager?

Oooh! This is a fantastic choice. I think I'd like to be friends with teenage Liz Lemon (or at least we'd sit at the same table).

Hmn, this is a good one! I'd like to see Brennan from 'Bones' as a teenager. I loved the episode where they went back for her highschool reunion and we learned a little about what she was like back then- eating with the janitor. LOL

Ha! I so love when she flashes back to her nerdy teenage years. Not to mention, the episode of the HS reunion-- awesome!

Oh my goodness, I don't know if I could even handle it. Her adulthood is so hard to watch at times that her teenage years must have been agonizing. Funny and agonizing.

That's such a good one! I'm thinking Princess Leia. Wouldn't that be fun?

Sarah Nicolas said...

Oh yes, I think a teenage Liz would lend itself well to YA lit - you could do such fun things with her voice!

Liz Lemon would be awesome! I was just thinking about her today---when she was talking about modern communications technology and was like, "Wow, there's so many ways for a guy to not call you back these days." I can't think of anyone to top her---well done!

Sounds like a cool character!

i totally agree with this. have you ever seen the 30 rock ep about liz's high school reunion?

Meredith said...

That would be AMAZING. I wish I knew a Liz Lemon in real life. :)

Such a great choice! I chose Sookie Stackhouse. Why? I dunno, cause truly she gets on my nerves, but still I get sucked into every single one of those novels for a reason.

Have you read Bossypants? Tina Fey goes into her teen years a bit. Hilarious! And there are some chapters on 30 Rock. I have yet to see the show, but I can just see this character would be too funny.

Liz is awesome and funny! I don't remember the name of the actress/writer who plays Liz at the moment, but I think her career is amazing.

Have you seen the episode that had bits of teenage Liz? She was very nerdy! I love Liz Lemon too.
