Judy Blume, in the thick of things again

This comes from Judy's blog:
Key West - they're at it again and this time right in my backyard at the Sugarloaf School, on Sugarloaf Key, about 20 miles from Key West on US 1. That's right -- a parent has challenged Forever, charging that distributing the book to minors is a felony under Florida law and that it also constitutes sexual harassment. Huh? She doesn't believe in censorship, she says, but she wants the book removed anyway. She's holding the librarian responsible, as a student checked the book out of the school library, then read aloud passages from it on a school bus.

Read the rest here.

I love FOREVER.
I think Judy was secretly listening to my high school boyfriend when she wrote that dialog.

Key West parent--get a life, or too bad you never had one.
