Going Bovine by Libby Bray
Someone donated three copies of Going Bovine to our school and I was pretty psyched. I had seen it around and it looked pretty interesting, albeit much longer than I expected.
One chapter in and I knew there would be no book club around Going Bovine. This novel contains far too much cursing, sex, and casual drug use to ever join the shelves of our library. I wonder if even high schools will be able to justify having it on their shelves. I'm not going to continue reading it, I'd rather focus on novels that I will be able to recommend to my students.
Now, what to do with those three copies?!
