Am I Blue?

2005

Challenged in Solon (IA) 8th grade language arts class because Bruce Coville's "Am I Blue" explores a boy's confusion with his sexual identity and the gay fairy godfather who helps him overcome homophobia at school. The short story was eventually retained.

2001

Challenged, but retained in Fairfield (IA) Middle and High School libraries despite objections to sexually explicit passages, including a sexual encounter between two girls.


Held at Cabell County Public Library
