Into the River by Ted Dawes
« on: September 09, 2015, 03:25 AM »
Unbelievably, this book, aimed at teens has been banned in New Zealand.  Apparently there are a few that don't like the way the story describes bullying at a boarding school, and the very brief sex scenes.  ( very brief too)   They are wanting to out a rating on it.

I find this disturbing to say the least, and yes, I have read it,  as it is available on Amazon ( but, they too, took it down for a couple of days)   

The kids of the age that would read it, Know about bullying and sex.....  I am dumbfounded 
I am not a complete idiot, some parts are missing    :)
