Jefferson County school officials have discontinued use of a novel at Harpers Ferry Middle School after a parent raised concerns about its content.
Jefferson County Schools assistant superintendent Pat Blanc tells The Journal that the novel wasn't on the state-approved list of books and didn't go through the county's approval process.
Earlier this year, the novel was ranked second on the American Library Association's annual study of books subject to complaints from parents, educators and other members of the public.
