Pulled as a summer reading assignment in the Leon County (FL) schools because of the book's content and language. Moved from required reading to optional reading at the Lincoln High School in Tallahassee (FL) after receiving about a dozen calls and emails about the book's profanity and atheism. The award-winning book is about a 15-year-old autistic chhild who investigates the death of a neighbor's dog.
Banned from the ninth-grade honors-level English reading list in the Wilson County (TN) schools due to offensive language. The book was removed from libraries and the possesion of students soon after. The decision was later rescinded on advice of the school board attorney due to possible conflict with a board policy.
Removed from the Lake Fenton (MI) summer reading program after parents complained about itd "foul language." The book is about an authistic child who investigates the death of a neighborhood dog.
Challenged at the Galveston (TX) County Reads Day because the book could "pollute" young minds.
