Book: Slaughter House-Five By: Kurt Vonnegut

This anti-war book is about a man (Kurt Vonnegut) who went to war and started to write an anti-war book and talk about how bad war is, Like Billy Pilgrim getting captured by the Germans. I find the swearing amusing. I think this book should be read by older teens because of the language used in this book. This book is pretty long to because of the font, its only 215 pages.

sexual assault letter

Dear To Whom it may concern,
I am a 14 year old kid (a freshmen) who just read the book Speak. I saw a letter saying that Mr. Scroggins wants to ban  the book Speak because of soft-pornography. If Mr. Scroggins thought this was soft-pornography, he is sick in the head. How could he have pleaser over a girl getting raped. I think that is wrong because what if there are kids out there that need help cause someone raped them. There are 1/6 women that are raped in the U.S.. If Mr. Scroggins wants to ban this book he better bring an army because I’m willing to fight for the book SPEAK!
Sincerely yours,
A Freshman in High School
