Meg Cabot Gets Her Wish

Meg Cabot's Diary reports that among other places, The Princess Diaries have been banned from North Joshua Elementary School in Texas. The books were cited for sexual content and found inappropriate for grades pre-kindergarten through 6th grade.

Says Cabot,

Have you ever had a secret—or even not-so-secret—dream?

A dream that maybe you wished upon a star would come true?

Or prayed for on bended knee?

A dream that everyone told you was totally unrealistic…would never come true…to just give up on…that, yeah, okay, might happen for other people, but was never going to happen for you?

This post is for all you dreamers out there. Keep on dreaming, dreamers.

Because dreams? They really can come true, if you hang in there, and believe in them long enough.

Because my dream? It finally came true. Through hard work, perseverance, and many, many references to French kissing.

Yes, people. It finally happened:

I’ve been banned.
