|Banned/Challenged Teen Books (29 titles)
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?

|The thirteenth child |
by Patricia C. Wrede
Very disappointing book. Why did the author choose to write a book that completely eliminates an entire race of people? posted May 14, 2009 at 11:05PM
