School pulls book from shelves
A book by popular young adult horror author Christopher
Pike has raised concerns at Nampa’s West Middle School and has
been temporarily pulled from the school library’s shelves.
A group of seventh-grade teachers at the school have asked that the
book “The Listeners” be removed from the library, along with other
grisly storylines by the prolific author.
Principal Jeff Read is reading a selection of the Pike books and said
he and media specialist Dale Buzzell will make a decision whether to
permanently remove the book on Monday.
