Alamogordo Public Schools remove Neverwhere from curriculum, shelves

“After learning that her daughter was reading Neverwhere, which contains a brief passage where the central character attempts to intterupt two adulterous lovers on a park bench and discovers that he is invisible, the mother of an Alamogordo High School student went to school administrators to ask that the book be removed from the curriculum.  On hearing of the complaint, Superintendent Dr. George Straface ordered that the book be removed from the curriculum and from the shelves while it undergoes review for age-appropriateness.” (via Censored Books)
