Central Florida school librarians: Reporter Angela Jacobs wonders if you have a certain book on your shelves

I suspect Ginny Maziarka would say the book is not appropriate for any library. “When the parent brought that to the attention of the principal, we immediately took a look at it and realized yes, that’s a teen-reader book, not appropriate for elementary school age students,” said Michael Lawrence of the Seminole County School District.

Booklist recommends for grades 8-11.
