10. The book has opened a lively discussion here it seems. As an
English teacher who used to teach it years ago, I found that it was a story that teens could associate with their own feelings. Teens like to stretch the limits. This lady brings to mind the moron who held up the sign claiming liberals were morans; she has never read any book, but she has the temerity to tell others what to read. America is screwed when people like these illiterates have any influence over education.
