In the April 6 Orlando Sentinel, a mom of a 13-year-old girl is petitioning to get Maureen Johnson’s The Bermudez Triangle and Cecily von Ziegesar’s Only in Your Dreams: A Gossip Girl Novel yanked from the Leesburg Public Library.
The mom told the Sentinel: “I’m optimistic because it’s such common sense,” she said. “It’s not a gray area. It is black and white. It’s so distasteful for youths. It’s so farfetched that we would allow this to happen in the first place.”
Johnson’s book has been challenged twice, both times in Oklahoma, and von Ziegesar’s has been challenged 13 times, including in Arizona and Florida.
