I’ve always wanted this, and now it’s here.

On April 2, the Meridian, Idaho, school board voted 2–1 to remove the book from the 10th-grade supplemental reading list after some parents at Centennial High School objected to it a few weeks earlier. Brady Kissel, 17, a student at Mountain View High in Meridian, gathered 350 signatures on a protest position, which she presented to the trustees at the April 2 meeting. When two Washington State residents, Sara Baker of Seattle and Jennifer Lott of Spokane, heard of the petition, they spearheaded a fundraising drive to purchase 350 copies of the novel.

Nice job, Little, Brown.

There are still a lot of big authors and titles not available digitally, but this addition is a huge step.
