KEEP THE CLASSICS
Do Not Ban A Separate Peace
Minimal Offensive Language and No Sexual Content
Prior to belief, A Separate Peace does not contain a lot of offensive language. There is also absolutely no sexual content; it is about a friendship, not a relationship.
Relatable Friendship Themes
Many high schoolers go through the same feelings as Gene and Finny, including jealousy, guilt, and forgiveness.
Different Writing Style for Students to Analyze
Unlike most novels, A Separate Peace goes into the characters' mind. It is a complex style that is good for literature classes to study.
Even celebrities, such as Justin Bieber, love this novel and believe it should be kept in the classroom!
