YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday #109

This week’s Road Trip Wednesday poses this question:

What would be the ideal holiday present for your main character (or favorite character)? 

My main character in this case is Darian from my work-in-progress Coldfire, who has a fiery hatred for anything pertaining to Christmas. Can’t blame him. His parents died on Christmas Day. While he would rather forget about the day altogether, when it comes to presents a book is the best bet. Since he will be receiving this gift on a day when he’s quite upset, a book showing him someone’s else’s experience with grief might make him feel less alone and become a source of comfort. Another great gift for him would be a big bear hug. Or maybe some Valium so he’ll just go to sleep and wake up on a more pleasant day…

    • There is a strange kind of appeal to broken men (and women) in fiction. The good thing about Darian is he’s able to work through his issues most of the time, but he doesn’t always succeed.
