My book almost gets a kid expelled from school!

Okay, have to share some disturbing news that involves my tween/teen post-apocalyptic adventure The Mask of Tamirella. A friend's 11 year old did a report on it for school. Sounds like a good thing, right? The teacher asked if she could read the book. Another yippie, right? Now here's the big BUT - Because the main character, an underage girl, has a crush on an older man in the book, this teacher reported our friend's kid, stating that he was using the book and his book report to hit on her. The poor boy almost got expelled. Thankfully, his family backed him and straightened the teacher out. 

I'm sending him another book free of charge and I hope that teacher apologizes to him.

Here's a link to the book I'm talking about.  http://www.danadaviswriting.com/The_Mask_of_Tamirella.htm

I know the school's have changed a lot since I left them, but that's ridiculous.

I know it's been a long time since I was 11 and in school, but that's absurd. I have a lot of respect for teachers, but this one's behavior is hard to fathom.

I agree, Armen. This teacher was way out of line.
