That is such a good book. I recall a little profanity but less than a kid in high school hears from his friends on a regular basis. In any case, the book is so well written and tells such a unique story that a few bad words is not a big deal. I gave it to my fourteen year old daughter after I read it and she enjoyed it as well.

Curious Incident was picked as the school-wide read for next year where my dad teaches. He’s already had two complaints about it.

Luckily, because it’s a Catholic school, they’re less likely to change the curriculum due to a few complaints. Also, he gets to say the Earth is 4.5 billion years old.

So why do you guys have required summer reading in the States? I just don't get it. Anyway, I think we read a Curious Incident in Grade 10 or 11 during school and as far as I know there haven't been any complaints about it at my school. I haven't read it yet but I don't get what the big deal is. It's not like highschoolers don't use profanity every single day, mostly cause they think it makes them look cool but whatever.

His mom will complain in college too. I think they call them helicopter parents--still hovering. But you know what? I laughed when I read your post. I just got an e-mail today saying that my alma mater is using this for summer reading for their first year students and faculty.
