While the same can probably be said of countless other schools across the country, prom at Longbourn isn’t just a rite of passage — it’s considered by many (at least those who matter) to be the social event for future members of high society.

First of all thanks for the recommendation Morgan! They recommended me this manga, and I decided to check it out, since it did look pretty good. And now after reading it, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it, but that I still have some questions about it.
I just wanted to make sure you all know that this week is Banned Books Week! A week that really needs all the attention it could get. Banning books is not something I agree with, I think everyone should make the decision to read a book by themself. So I am supporting this week with all I can. I will be trying to read some banned books this week, probably comics as there are some comics that are banned or challenged which are my favourites. And I also saw some graphic novels that I still want to read, and I was shocked to find out that apparently they are banned/challenged!
At the end of the week I might be making a post with what I read, and again, encourage everyone to search out these books and read them!
