The Opal Madness

I just finished reading How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life. All I have to say is that I wish, so much, that she’d not gotten caught up in all the scandal. I really enjoyed reading it. Am I a traitor for feeling that way? I don’t know. I do feel betrayed a bit, as some of my favorite parts turned out to be parts she’d allegedly lifted.

Sigh. This makes me VERY paranoid that I might be ripping off a favorite author of mine, intentionally or not. :(
