Joanne Under Lock and Key: The Experiment does not belong on this list. The author just added it herself

Hi Joanne,
Do you know if the book can be removed? I created the list and see I can only remove the books I added, not the one that was voted by the author herself. I have no idea whether her book is any good or not, but it certainly was NOT nominated for this prize...

Joanne I think a GRs librarian needs to do it. I'm not one though, sorry.

Thanks Joanne, I happen to be a GR librarian and investigated a bit and found how to remove the book. Done! :)
