"Restored by the Lackawanna, N.Y. School Board (2008) along with several other books following accusations of censorship by some parents and teachers. The book was pulled from the middle school library recommended list because of concerns that the book deals with the occult." (Source: "Books Challenged or Banned in 2007-2008," www.ala.org (PDF))
