Hold Still


Pulled from the Blue Springs (MO) School District Library and classrooms because the book is "riddled with obscenities." The novel is about a young girl coping with the suicide of her best friend. The book, according to parents, was read as part of an extra credit assignment in a freshman English class. The local chapter of the ACLU is threatening to get involved if the book is permanently removed..

Held at Cabell County Public Library
