Little, Brown Recalls "How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild and Got a Life"

The plot thickens...

Little, Brown has recalled all of the copies of "How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild and Got a Life". Megan McCafferty, author of the plagiarised work, has released this statement:

"In the case of Kaavya Viswanathan's plagiarizing of my novels 'Sloppy Firsts' and 'Second Helpings,' " she said, "I wish to inform all of the parties involved that I am not seeking restitution in any form." (NYT)

I'm curious to see what will happen to her advice, contract, and how this will impact her 'book packaging' company.
