The book titled "Schooled" is described on Amazon.com as "Chelsea Handler meets '50 Shades of Gray.'" It contains adult language, adult content and explicit sex scenes and is being sold in the online store's erotic section.
Carol Ann Eastman, a seven-year Hoover High teacher, reportedly authored the book under the pen name Deena Bright.
Parents told the school board Wednesday that it's not the book itself that's bothersome, but comments attributed to the author about the novel, the Canton Repository reported Thursday.
The newspaper stated that two parents said they would not want their children in Eastman's class.
The Amazon description of "Schooled" describes the plot: "A young teacher learns about sexuality, pleasure, and satisfaction from rather unlikely and forbidden teachers, her former students, now recent college graduates."
WKYC.com reported that Eastman had three weeks off and she returned to school Dec. 3. She had been under investigation for misusing social media on school time and was docked five days' pay, the TV sation reported.
