Make Rocket Boys by Homer Hickam the state book of West Virginia instead of the Bible.

Recently the West Virginia state legislature introduced a bill that would make the Bible the state book of West Virginia. While we believe it's just fine to practice whatever religion you see fit, the state should not be represented by religious text as the founders of our country would frown upon it, and that particular book does not represent everyone from the entire state. We offer this solution. Use the famed book Rocket Boys by Homer Hickam as the state book. This book was used to make a major motion picture and shows life in our state in a more accurate light. It also shows that we as West Virginians will stop at nothing to secure our dreams and over come all obstacles in our way. Thank you for your support.
