Many thanks to Rochelle for Friday Fictioneers!
For all Jane’s life, there had been books. Little Women to The Shining to Atonement and beyond.
Now, members of the school board wanted to rip books from her shelves. Parents wanted to burn them. How had she gone to sleep in the 21st century but awoken in the 1930’s?
Jane braced herself as the book banner approached.
“Why is that book here?”
“Have you read it?”
“Perhaps you should.”
Jane thought it a small victory when the woman took the book and left. Maybe after she read, she’d understand.
Then Jane received the reprimand and leave without pay.
