FPC Review Committee Meeting for ‘The Truth About Alice’
The Flagler Palm Coast High School Book Review Committee meets to discuss a book challenge, at 3 p.m., at Flagler Palm Coast High School, 5500 State Road 100, Palm Coast, in the Media Center. The meeting is open to the public. A Flagler County group is seeking to ban The Truth About Alice, a 2014 novel by Jennifer Mathieu, about toxic rumors haunting a high school girl who’s said to have slept with two high school quarterbacks and a college student at the same party. Kirkus Review called it “A quick if unoriginal read saved by a realistic ending.” Book bans in Flagler have been the unoriginal work of a vigilante group called “moms for liberty,” except when it comes to the liberty to read. See: “Flagler Schools Have Been Quietly Banning or ‘Removing’ Many Books Since Summer in Bow to ‘Moms for Liberty’.” The committee meets again on Feb. 16 to review The Black Flamingo.
