Fallen Angels Walter Dean Myers * A Child Called It Dave Pelzer * Persepolis Marjane Satrapi * Muslim Women and the Challenges of Islamic Extremism Norani Othman, ed. * Intensely Alice Phyllis Reynolds Naylor


  1. I can't believe this is a challenged book! I read it a few years ago for Banned Book challenge, and was surprised at how good it was, especially the ending. I love the ending. Writing becomes real, felt in the body, lived. I hated the book burning part. I am astonished at the books that people challenge, and the reasons.

    1. Although I never limited the reading choices of my own children, I can almost see wanting to control what your children might read. But the moment people try to extend that control over other people and their choices, they have crossed the line. I tend to get angry & ranty. My husband believes that I would be the one to go up in flames standing in the middle of my library, but I don't know if I'm quite that brave.
