I'm a tenth grader in English honors. I consider myself well-rounded and experienced for my age as I'm a military kid who has moved all around the world. I have toured Anne Frank's home and I've lived in Germany for many years - hearing about the Holocaust from the German as well as the American standpoint. The books that I've been asked to year since being in FCPS have definately had a negative effect on me. I have at times, told my mother that they've made me feel depressed and as a teenage boy - I don't need to read topics such as boy on boy rape, family incest, etc. I know it's out there but I don't need to read about it over and over again. Please give us options with alternative books or to opt out.
