Banned Books

THE BODY OF CHRISTOPHER CREED

2013

Challenged, but retained, in the Appleton (WI) Area School District ninth-grade curriculum despite the book's references to suicide and sex. Other titles also considered inappropriate by the local parent group, Valley School Watch, include The Cather in the Rye and The House on Mango Street. The reading list for the group's ideal alternate class would contain books with no profanity, obscenity, or sexual material.
