My oldest (boy, age 14) brought home a permission slip for English class to read the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. The slip said that there was mention of sexual assault and rape in the book, so if we weren't comfortable with our child reading that, they could do an alternate project.
I've never heard of this book, and was shocked that it would be considered for an English project! I said no, my child would not read that book.
What do you think? Am I over-reacting as usual? Has anyone here read that book?
