Banned Books

STAYING FAT FOR SARAH BYRNES

2011

The Belleville (WI) School Board decided to keep a book that's required reading for high school freshmen in the curriculum despite a parent's complaint that the book was "ponography" and its language was "pervasively vulgar." Published in 1993, the novel has been read by ninth-grade students at Belleville Hish School for eight years. The book deals with topics of abortion, sexuality, and the power of religion.
