An 11-year-old boy who found a "pornographic" book in his school library blasted the novel and demanded that administrators be prosecuted.
Knox Zajac, a pupil at a middle school in Maine, US, read a passage from the book Nick and Charlie, written by Alice Oseman that inspired the popular Netflix series Heartstopper.
