There's nothing in the Common Core to suggest they'll take books like this out. Malkin makes a common mistake, one which is spelled out as incorrect in the Common Core: 70% of the reading kids do in the upper grades is supposed to be nonfiction, yes, but that's supposed to be 70% of ALL the reading they do, not just what they do for English class. The percentage of fiction, obviously, would be much higher in English.
