You'll have a "smelly" good time!
Author: Lauren Myracle
Teen Reviewer: Emma
Rating: 3 out of 5
This story is about high school girls getting though school. They talk about how they are friends and the stuff that they have to go through.
TTYL is the first book in the Internet Girls series. This series was ranked number one in the most frequently challenged books of 2011. It has been challenged due to offensive language, religious viewpoints, sexually explicit material, and unsuitable content to age group.
What I find cool about being a banned author is this: I'm writing books that evoke a reaction, books that, if dropped in a lake, go down not with a whimper but a splash.
Banned Books Week has officially begun. As mentioned in our Friday's post, Banned Books Week is observed by libraries across the world. We celebrate one's freedom to read any book he or she chooses despite the content. No book should be banned or censored from others.
This list represents books that were challenged, banned, or restricted in 2014-2015 as reported in the Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom. Many of these titles were banned for sexual content, profanity, unsuitable material for teenagers, or violence. For more information on the titles click on me. Enjoy!
A few weeks back we asked you "What 2015 fall television show are most ready for?" The results were a tie between Dr. Ken and The Walking Dead.
Banned Books Week will begin on Monday, September 27. During Banned Books Week, libraries across the world celebrate one's freedom to read. No book should be banned and censored from others. Throughout the week, we will feature the reasons why books have been banned, so please stay tuned.
Now, it is time to ask the question. "What banned books have you read?" Feel free to select as many books or add more to the comment section.
