I'm not hating anything except a piece of drivel that contains a graphically depicted rape scene and is littered with foul language. If the author was worthy of a "masterpiece" she would have been able to write without the use of the foul language. There are so many books out there that are better. This nonsense is not necessary.
If you want education then have the kids read Dickens, Tolstoy and the like. They wrote great books with excellent vocabularies that didn't warrant a book being littered with the language that Walker used.
As far as doing something, I monitor what my children do in school. My daughter graduated from West Brunswick with honors. She did so without reading that trash.
