Books shouldnt be banned. My school has most of those but I think they ban books because of the content like when there is a lot of violence or sexuality. Like anything some people can handle it and some cant depending on your age.

We had a German exchange student stay with us and she brought teen magazines that would have been banned at my school because of the topics they discussed and even the nudity and body stuff it showed, even showed guys bodies. But banning is never good if it has good information or is great literature.

Tragic. I love the Ttyl series, Harry Potter, and the Perks of Being a Wallflower. They're very good books. :/

oh and Colie34720
Books are banned in places for various reasons like: nudity, language, racism, promoting witch craft, talking animals, homosexuality, and just being unsuited for age groups

Harry Potter series, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Goosebumps can way no how be banned! :\ They are memorable books just like the Lorax book version, I cried tears reading it to the 2nd graders last skool year for volunteering and they said, " the boy will plant the last seed, the earth is a little sick, that's all..." So adorable and thoughtful kids!

modmodmodmod So I have a little problem with trying to be flirty/funny but ending up taking it too far and ending up creepy and annoying. I do it especially to this one guy who I kind of like (I touch his hair and say weird things about us dating) even though he's stupid, annoying and rude sometimes. I really think I'm going to far and he won't want to be friends with me anymore. I do want to be friends with him but how to I alo tell him to be less rude. Like today, I was acting creepy and he said "if she were a 10 (as in rating girls) she'd be my worst nightmare."so his friend asked him what he meant so he said that he dreams about "hot chicks scaring him and I'm 4 points away" So basically how can I stop him from being rude? and how can I flirt better and keep myself from being creepy.



Hey girly! I'd lay off this guy a little. He sounds like a jerk, and you can do better than that. As for scaring guys away, it's important to be yourself, but also be relaxed. Don't try to rush things. Guys like confident girls, and girls that have their own lives and interests. By showering a guy with too much attention, it'll look like you have nothing better to do, and that won't be attractive. So, take a step back and pause before saying things/doing things. Maybe enlist your friends for some help. Ask them to give you the heads up if you're being "creepy."

That's just weird. Why would they need to do that? I know my school has a least 3 of those series

by kittycat99kmb on 10/1/2012 11:42:43 PM


Haha, the Hunger Games is about a power-rulled society and it got banned! HAHAHA

by Glitterheart16 on 10/1/2012 10:42:37 PM


MOD MOD MOD MOD I have been told that I come off as rude or hurt people's feelings without noticing it. I didn't realize i was doing this, and i never want to hurt anyone's feelings. What can I do about this?



Hey chica! Sometimes, things come off not the way we intend them to. I'd make it a point to listen to others more than you talk, and when you're stressed or in a bad mood, take a few breaths before saying something you don't mean. Maybe enlist your pals for help, too. Ask them to let you know when you're coming off as rude, in case you don't realize it yourself.

At our school, they banned CHARLOTTE'S WEB!!! I mean, I read that book for the first time in the first grade... And they banned James and the Giant Peach. And the Giver, which we READ IN CLASS LAST YEAR. And Flowers for Algernon, which we read THIS YEAR!!! So weird...

by topaz1116 on 10/1/2012 8:59:54 PM


Oh my! The hp series! My heart just broke.

by wildflower223 on 10/1/2012 7:45:16 PM


HUNGER GAMES!?!?!?!?!?!?! I AM OUTRAGED well at least I have yet another reason to read them . LOL

by auslly123 on 10/1/2012 7:13:53 PM


Why would a light in the attic be banned? thats weird
Okay so my friend's boyfriend is really strange. I know he has just a weird personality but he is nice, sometimes too nice. He always is hitting on me and getting like really close to me and making me uncomfortable and he tried to kiss me the other day! I have told my friend about it, and she just shrugged it off and I told him to cut it out but he is still going on with it. How can I get him to stop?

Hey girl, be firm about it and tell him to stop. Remind him he's your friend's boyfriend, not yours, and his behavior is making you uncomfortable. If he still doesn't stop, keep your distance and bring it up to your friend, telling her specifically what he does. Stick to hanging out with him in groups from there on out. xoxo
