Banned Books Week
Here are other books I read and enjoyed:
Anonymous. Go Ask Alice. (When I taught 10th grade, my students introduced me to this one.)
Green, John. Looking for Alaska.
Lee, Harper. To Kill a Mockingbird. (My favorite book of all time.)
Meyer, Stephenie H. Twilight Series.
Morrison, Toni. The Bluest Eye.
Myers, Walter Dean. Hoops.
Pullman, Philip. The Golden Compass.
Rennison, Louise. Angus, Thongs and Full-
Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson.
Salinger, J. D. The Catcher in the Rye. (This one’s on the list every year, isn’t it?)
Sebold, Alice. The Lovely Bones. (Couldn’t stop listening to the CD.)
Taylor, Mildred D. The Land.
Twain, Mark [Samuel L. Clemens]. The
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Walker, Alice. The Color Purple.
I want youth to always be free to read. Is that wrong?
