Banned/Challenged Teen Books
In honor of Banned Books Week (Sept. 21-27), here are the most commonly banned or challenged Teen/Young Adult novels. Most of these books have been challenged in libraries and school districts in the past few years. They have been challenged for a variety of reasons, including being explicit, for having offensive language, and for having themes that are "unsuitable" for teens. Have you read any of these books? What do you think?   Print this list Print this list
