Okay, so it's not actually me personally that's almost banned. Sometimes I have a hard time separating myself from my book. It's actually THE WAY HE LIVED that's being challenged in Lake County, Florida. And with this being Banned Books Week and everything, the timing couldn't be better! Or make me happier. Not that I'm happy people want to ban books, which is bad, bad, bad. But when these elusive "people" succeed, others are like, hey, you can't tell me what I can't read! and they go on and read it anyway. Making us as a society stronger as we prove that indeed we ARE capable of thinking for ourselves. And now THE WAY HE LIVED is one of those books making people think!
I should mention that I'm in very good company--seriously, I'm such a fangirl that I get a thrill even from being on the same list as these people. We're talking Holly Black, John Green, Maureen Johnson and a bunch of others, including author of the ever-controversial Gossip Girls series. I mean, to be on a list with the likes of Gossip Girl...it's just surreal.
You know you love me!
