A mother of a 7th grade student at Northville Mill Middle School in Michigan is protesting the school to send home permission slips before assigning “The Diary of Anne Frank” to its students.

The mother called the book “inappropriate material” due to the fact that there is a passage that describes the female body and Frank’s feelings about going through puberty.
