SH committee: Book can stay during deliberations
Sweet Home eighth-graders can keep reading a controversial young adult novel for now, at least until a reconsideration committee makes its ruling.
The nine-member committee took nearly two hours of public testimony and deliberated for about another half-hour before coming to its decision Wednesday. Members will meet again at 5 p.m. Feb. 12 to determine whether the book will remain in use for the future.
This is such a great book.
