STUCK IN THE MIDDLE: SEVENTEEN COMICS FROM AN UNPLEASANT AGE

2012

Challenged, but retained in three Main towns - Dixfield, Mexico, and Buckfield - middle school libraries despite "objectionable sexual and language references." The book, however, will be placed in the libraries professional collection, which means a student may take out the book only if parental permission is granted.

2010

Pulled from the school library collections at two Sioux Falls (SD) public middle schools. The book is the work of sixteen cartoonists who recreated true tales from their middle-school years. The book's major themes are bullying and boy-girl awkwardness. Masturbation and marijuana show up in passing, and several of the vignettes include words most parents wouldn't want to hear from their children.
