Banned Books 2016 – Some Girls Are

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


Pulled from the freshmen Honors English I summer reading list at West Ashley High School in Charleston (SC) after a parent complained about the novel’s dark and explicit content. The book is about a high school senior who is ostracized and bullied by her former friends after she reports an attempted rape by a popular boy.
