My mother tried to ban me from reading books in which divorced parents 
got back together. Like Lotte and Lisa, and there was one LM Montgomery 
with this plot I never read. It was kind of stupid, because the banned 
books got a mystique, and I never had any desire to see my parents get 
back together. Actually, it was more like, when I read those books, the 
idea of parents getting back together boggled my mind.
