Book Cover

Montana 1948


Challenged, but eventually retained at the Merrill (WI) High School despite some parents complaining that it is "questionable reading material for their tenth-grade students because of language, and sexual and racist themes." School leaders added it to the curriculum twelve years ago, saying it was a less controversial substitue for Catcher in the Rye. School leaders also said students have the option of reading a different book if they don't feel comfortable with the one they're assigned.

Held at Cabell County Public Library
