KAMLOOPS – A book a Kamloops parent deemed inappropriate and pornographic has been reviewed by School District 73.

Dean Audet spoke to media last month about his son’s school reading assignment The Perks of Being a Wallflower — a book he says is not suitable for use in schools.

Karl deBruijn, assistant superintendent of School District 73, was unable to comment on the district’s determination in the book's review.

"It will be going to the board... I can't really discuss the outcome until it's gone to the board," deBruijn said.

DeBruijn confirmed a letter outlining the details has been sent to Audet. The review will be released on Monday April 28.
