Banned Books

FAT KID RULES THE WORLD

2008

Removed from the Pickens County (SC) middle- and high-school library shelves because "the language, the sexual references, and drug use are not appropriate for middle school students." Challenged as a suggested summer reading at the Alsip (IL) Prairie JH because the book is "laced with profanity and other mature content." The District 126 Superintendent plans to retain the award-winning selection as one of the many titles offered to students to read, preferably from the recommended summer reading list before school begins.
