Challenge decision: Just Listen to stay in school library.

The last article I read about this situation made it sound as if the decision had already been made.  Guess not.

Some great pro-Just Listen (and Sarah Dessen) quotes here:

"I had really strong feelings," said Delia Anderson, Armwood's reading coach. "I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting. ... I thought it was fantastic."

Carla Wuenschel, parent of an 18-year-old at Armwood, said the author "has a perspective of young minds that's unbelievable. ... She did a tremendous job."

Parent Cheryl Watkins, a registered nurse with a 15-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son, didn't make the meeting but submitted her written review.

"The music played at Pep Rallies & the dances at this school is 10 X more offensive than anything I read in this book!" Watkins wrote.

"As a parent, woman & nurse, it's my opinion that this book not only stay in the library but also become a mandatory read," she wrote.
