Apparently some teenagers are so impressionable that they can subconsciously write passages from other people's novels verbatim in their own works of fiction. This teenager unfortunately attends Harvard, and is a sister to boot. Check it out for yourself. Seems pretty obvious to me. She says she didn't realize how much she had internalized the original works. Come on, if you're going to internalize something at least make it a work that contributes to the canon we call literature. Oh wait, she would have been more likely to get caught if she had plagiarized Toni Morrisson. Hey publishers, maybe it's not such a good idea to give so much advance bling to everyone.
UPDATE: She fessed up. They pulled the book from stores. Over 40 instances of copying. She's the scapegoat for "book packagers." What drama. And the book probably wasn't even that good. 'Nuff said about this. It's pathetic.
