I love it when my school sends me passive aggressive emails about stuff… like I’m sorry but I am really busy and I don’t really want to take the time to complete you super generic survey. Do the scholarship donors even read them?
My name is jobpm and my hobbies include making charts to help me figure out loopholes in my college’s credit limits so that I can take more art history classes than “technically” allowed…
as-howarth said: Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?
I guess I am both happy and sad.
I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.
But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.
