Fair and Tender Ladies


Challenged in the Washington County (VA) schools because of a few "crude" words deemed too graphic for teenage honor students. The author claimed the book provides teens with a safe forum to address issues such as unwanted pregnancy. The novel demonstrates the necessity of a good education and highlights the importance of southwestern Virginia's heritage.

Held at Marshall University (Drinko Library, Appalachian Collection - 813.S654fai)
