Why Not Detention?

Highland Park (TX) High School has “suspended” seven books from their approved books list after complaints from parents about crimes ranging from references to homosexuality to criticisms of capitalism.

Michael Shaub spotted Sherman Alexie, whose The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian landed on the naughty list, tweeting, "The real reason my True Diary gets banned? Because it's about the triumph of a liberal Native American rebel."

If they’re suspended, what do the books need to do to get readmitted to class?
