Twenty Boy Summer
Removed from Republic (MO) High School, but later returned and stored in a secure section of the library only accessible to parents. Teachers cannot require the book nor read it aloud in school. A Republic resident filed a complaint about the appropriateness of the book because it sensationalizes "sexual promiscuity, questionable language, drunkeness, lying to parents, and a lack of remorse by the characters."
Challenged in the Republic (MO) schools because it is "soft-pornography" and "glorifies drinking, cursing, and premarital sex."
