CHARLESTON, SC – The book “Some Girls Are” is about a high school senior who is once popular but she then becomes an outcast after being sexually assaulted, the story also includes use of drugs and alcohol.  It upset some parents and it has been replaced.

‘Some Girls Are’ was one of three books in a summer reading unit called choices.  It includes books that may entice those less willing to read and are also meant to encourage dialog about real life events.

The district says the focus of the unit is to give students an opportunity have dialogue about relevant challenges they may face and the reading selections are approved by each school.
