"Higher Power of Lucky" not the first

I am a bit mortified by the hullabaloo over the "word" used in the 2007 Newbery winner, The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron. The book is in on order for our children's library and I am planning to read it.
To add some perspective to this tempest in a teapot is the list of books read by thousands of teens, tweens, that are already in our libraries. No nonsense titles such as Bless The Beasts And Children, by Glendon Swarthout and All Creatures Great and Small, by James Herriot. See the blog that has compiled this list for other titles. What do they have in common? All have the word "scrotum."
