My daughter brought home the book - it's for adults, not teenagers. The summary states that it's about a married woman with wild sex fantasies and her husband seems a little abusive. Even the vocabulary is a little above the average 15/16 year old

Answers:

Perhaps you should confer with teacher and let her know how you feel.

Your daughter needs a new mother. You are a fcuking idiot.

That does not sound age appropriate for most highschools, but for Troll highschool it may be very appropriate.

Daughters have to learn about marriage, divorce, sex and nightclubbing before she graduates from high school. I don't mean they should do it, but they could read about it rather than fantasizing what it is like. I was virginal as snow at grade ten, but two of my friends were pregnant at 15 (in 1971 BTW) and everyone was curious about "adult" subjects we saw on TV. (I went to a rural school.) Both girls were not "bad", but every girl wanted to attract boys and have a boy show he liked her. Better they can discuss growing up matters with their mothers; but sometimes they can't, so teachers have to find how to answer their questions in an indirect way through literature. Sending them into the city at 18 unprepared for what they'll encounter is not safe for them.

Well I remember my friend at school being assigned a graphic p0rn book at 16. I would say it’s a little inappropriate but if a shop won’t stop you buying it then you’re allowed to read it. If you have a problem with it you can always make a complaint to the school.

The teacher could have assigned a better book, but if you have a good working relationship with your daughter, why not co-read it with her, and talk about things you might have opinions on...give her the benefit of your perspective and experience. You might also give her and yourself a copy of Shaunti Feldhahn's "For Couples Only" or her "For Women Only," both of which share good insight into how to avoid or rise above some of Blume's issues. "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Married Life! 101 Inspirational Stories about Fun, Family, and Wedded Bliss," "Worthless: The Young Person's Indispensable Guide to Choosing the Right Major," "101 Things Every Young Adult Should Know," "The Quarter-Life Breakthrough: Invent Your Own Path, Find Meaningful Work, and Build a Life that Matters," "Finding a Higher Love," "The Great Divorce," and "The Code of the Woosters" are also helpful for building perspective.

If you think this book's vocabulary is too difficult for a 15 year old, you're destroying America. If a fifteen year old can't read a popular adult novel, because of the vocabulary, they're a moron.

Quit hiding your Puritanical nature by pretending you're not trying to feed your child pap. If your child is so sheltered at 15, that they can't read about someone who is married or about the subject of divorce, just pull them out of school and quit pretending they're getting an education. There is no way you'd let her read any great literature, so why waste her time at all? Put her in trade school.

I'd bother to list the novels I read in junior high and high school but even the Shakespeare or Dickens would likely give you the vapors and require that you go lie down.

You should protest to the school board.

why are you still in school in the middle of June
