Roanoke County school officials removed a copy of a controversial book from the library at William Byrd High School this week after a teacher there gave another copy to a student and a parent complained.
The novel, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” which includes sexually explicit scenes, was distributed in an English class. The female student shared it with a male friend and his father ultimately contacted the school’s principal.
The incident has prompted the school board to review its procedures for accepting books into school libraries.
