Writer's Block: Forbidden Reading

From Judy Blume to V.C. Andrews, there's always a book circulating among teens that their parents don't want them to read. What favorite book did you have to hide from your parents?

Never had to hide anything from my parents. My mom is a librarian, and saw no reason to censor what I was reading. If she thought something was objectionable, she would tell me why she thought so, but not tell me I couldn't read it.

I read at college level in junior high. Mom didn't have a problem with me reading stuff like V.C. Andrews as long as I read more substantial stuff!

I read anything I could get my hands on. *confession time* The folks I baby sat for when I was in high school had a bunch of books like "Joy of Sex" and Dr. Ruth stuff...very accessible. I learned quite a bit from those babysitting jobs...O_o (and Mom had been in their house, so she knew what was on their shelves...) Seriously, though, if it was a book, I would read it. And my parents had no problem with that.
