"Filthy" book

Recently a parent spoke at one of our districts board members ranting and raving about a "filthy" (her exact word) book that her child checked out at a middle school library. This parent did not contact the Teacher Librarian at the school nor did she contact the principal. She went straight to the board meeting and blindsited everyone involved. As a result our district has pulled this particular book and removed the Accelerated Reader quiz. I do not have the title in question "TTYL" but if I did I most certainly would have been advised to pull it from my shelves.I am embarassed and angry that this parent went over the head of my collague. This book has been in this particular school's library for five years! Five years before anybody said anything about it. Of course the parent has yet to return the book in question.
