Banned Book Week 2015

  

So here is this year’s list for the top ten banned books.

  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
  • Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi (Pantheon Books/Knopf Doubleday) 
  • The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison (Holt, Rinehart, and Winston)
  • The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini (Bloomsbury Publishing) 
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky (MTV Books/Simon & Schuster)
  • Drama, by Raina Telgemeier (Graphix/Scholastic)
  • Chinese Handcuffs, by Chris Crutcher (Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins) 
  • The Giver, by Lois Lowry (HMH Books for Young Readers)
  • The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros (Vintage/Knopf Doubleday) 
  • Looking for Alaska, by John Green (Dutton Books/Penguin Random House)

I haven’t read any of these.  Come to think about it, I haven’t read any banned books lately.  Hmm.  I guess I need to get back on my evil streak.
