A patron of the Mt. Angel (OR) Public Library complained about the “anti-religious” sentiments and “frequent use of profanity” in this book by the founder of the “It Gets Better” YouTube channel, which provides support to LGBTQIA+ teens in the wake of many teen suicides. After following appropriate policy, the director informed the patron that the book would be retained. The patron did not appeal the decision.
