"Unbanned book is Unpulled from High School"

In a previous post, the plight of The Freedom Writers Diary: How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them was highlighted. Earlier this month, the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus reported that the "Unbanned book is Unpulled from High School."

It was challenged because of alleged profanity and references to drugs and sex acts.
Approval for the book came just one day before a movie based on it was released in theaters.

Parents who don’t approve of their children reading the book will be offered an alternative.
