Stacy Langton, a mother of six, raises questions about who decides what books are approved for public school libraries. YouTube Tips ⓘ
Editorial reviews on Amazon and on primary web searches for Lawn Boy do not mention any vulgar language or the specific nature of the book Lawn Boy. However, the reviews describe the book as “not for children”, “a pedophile book”, “very profane”.
Stacy Langton, a mother of six, described that two books in the school library– Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison and Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe — include pedophilia content. When Langton mentioned that the two books contained pedophilia content, a board member cut her off, saying there children in the audience. Then Langton’s two-minute speaking allotment was pre-empted.
Amazon review …
For Mike Muñoz, life has been a whole lot of waiting for something to happen. Not too many years out of high school and still doing menial work–and just fired from his latest gig as a lawn boy on a landscaping crew–he’s smart enough to know that he’s got to be the one to shake things up if he’s ever going to change his life. But how? He’s not qualified for much of anything. He has no particular talents, although he is stellar at handling a lawn mower and wielding clipping shears. But now that career seems to be behind him. So what’s next for Mike Muñoz?
In this funny, biting, touching, and ultimately inspiring novel, bestselling author Jonathan Evison takes the reader into the heart and mind of a young man determined to achieve the American dream of happiness and prosperity–who just so happens to find himself along the way.
