Banned Books 2018 – A Bad Boy Can Be Good For A Girl

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Banned from the Cody (WY) High School library when the school board overruled the review committee. A parent complained that A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl was about sex in high school, of dubious literary quality and “arguably pornographic.” The review committee recommendation, on a 7-2 vote, was to retain the book. But the school board voted 5-1 to ban the book.


Challenged, but retained at the Currituck (NC) High School library. This first novel by Stone, written in a poetry format, follows the story of three girls who fall for the same bad boy intent on seducing every girl in school.
