So Saturday, at the LA Times Festival of Books, Meg Cabot said her books are always lighthearted, like The Princess Diaries, about a girl who's dying for her BFF's brother to notice her and who also happens to be a princess.
Or the series Airhead, about an evil corporation that's giving gorgeous model-like girls brain transplants, about which she kept saying, "It could happen people. It. Could. Happen."
"I'm never going to write about heavy, depressing topics because my childhood was heavy and depressing," she said. "My father was an alcoholic and constantly said stuff like, 'you're stupid.' For me, reading was an escape."
Reading was for me, and still is, an escape. Did you read as a kid? Why or why not?
