The best-selling book The Fault in Our Stars, narrated by a 16-year-old cancer patient, has been banned from Riverside Unified School District middle schools in California over sexual content, but it is still allowed in high schools.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that a district committee voted Monday to ban the 2012 novel by John Green that was made into a movie starring Shailene Woodley.

The newspaper says parent Karen Krueger challenged the book at Frank Augustus Miller Middle School in Riverside, California, over the sex and crude language in the love story involving terminally ill teens.

The committee voted 6 to 1 to pull the novel from the middle school and not allow others to buy or accept the book as a donation. Committee chairwoman Christine Allen says the book will be allowed at high schools.

While The Fault in Our Stars was being banned in California, the movie was getting the parody treatment on the Web. The film recently received the brutal, but hilarious Honest Trailer treatment.



The "altered" preview jokes about how truly depressing the plot is, why the Anne Frank House may be a bad spot for a first kiss, and how Ansel Elgort really put in the work to escape the friend zone.
