TheDailyBeast.com: The Top 10 Banned Books

‘TTYL; TTFN; L8R,G8R’ (Series) by Lauren Myracle

The “Internet Girls” series, which started in 2005 with "TTYL," is written entirely as instant messages among a group of friends. The series follows the girls from middle school to high school and deals with issues such as casual experimentation with sex, drugs, and alcohol—all while the girls use dirty words as they discuss their encounters. The first book in the series, "TTYL," was banned from a town in Texas in 2008, after parents complained about the sex and profanity in the book. But author Lauren Myracle seems unfazed by the controversy. “My favorite comments come from girls who say, ‘I feel like you’ve given me a self-help book because my parents won’t talk about this.’ When I was a kid, I read Judy Blume to figure out what a hard-on was and what to do when you got your period, so when people say to me, ‘You’re this generation's Judy Blume,’ I am wildly honored by that,” she says.
