Sex God remains on shelves in Montana School

Of course an unstable person could see a young girl reading the Little Women and take it as an inivitation. Thank God calmer heads prevailed in this case.

"A materials review committee for the Bozeman (Mont.) School District voted unanimously January 12 to retain Louise Rennison’s On the Bright Side, I’m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God: Further Confessions of Georgia Nicolson in the district’s middle-school libraries. The book had been challenged by Pius Ruby, whose 12-year-old attends the Sacajawea Middle School. Ruby feared that an unstable person seeing a girl reading the book might think from the title that the girl was promiscuous and stalk her, according to the January 11 Bozeman Daily Chronicle."
