Have you guys read the NYTimes article about Susan Patron’s Newbery Award-winning The Higher Power of Lucky?
Some librarians are complaining about the book having the word scrotum on the first page of the book.
Me, I don’t get it. It’s such a clinical sounding word…I can’t imagine that ten, twenty years down the road, people will be saying, “You scrotum!!!”
Or maybe they will be. *thinks*
Anyway, it just strikes as hilarious because reading the word scrotum in a sex scene will probably send me out of the mood entirely, so I don’t know what’s the big deal.
Tomorrow, Lucinda Betts‘s interview will be up. I must go write the review now.
Have a good day!
