The story of a boy who is bullied because of his ethnicity is one that I usually enjoy. But as a Christian teacher, I was torn as I read this. While I liked the story (and yes, I understand that it's set in the 70s), I was disappointed by the use of drugs and the inferences to boys reading porn and being aroused by it. Kids might not notice these things, but I don't like taking a chance with it when presenting books to my son and my students.
