Cracking India deemed "not harmful for minors" in Daytona Beach.
The original challenge was only about two months ago, so this was cleared up pretty quickly.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
The book, Cracking India, which is about the violent partition of India in 1947, may be read by high-school juniors and seniors, and its content is not harmful to minors, members of the Material Review Committee overwhelmingly agreed during a meeting in Daytona Beach. The 25-person committee comprises parents, teachers, district officials and community members.
"I was not offended by this at all," Spruce Creek High School parent Lisa Rhodes said. "I am very much against censoring books. It opens a can of worms."
The committee's recommendations will be forwarded to Volusia schools Superintendent Margaret Smith, who will make a final decision on whether the book will be used in schools.
Written by Bapsi Sidhwa, the novel, which contains a two-page scene describing a young girl's rebuffing of an older cousin's sexual proposition, drew controversy when a DeLand High School parent called it "pornography."
