This was a random read I picked up in the children’s section while looking for a Roald Dahl book. I was interested because of the title, and I wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed the story of the problems with censorship and learning to speak out for yourself. In this book, you will meet protagonist Amy Anne, a shy, quiet girl who loses herself in books and never says what’s on her mind. After her favorite book was banned from the school library by one mother, she starts a banned books library in her locker, which quickly grows to an extensive size. As she becomes aware of the ridiculous censorship attempts, she must learn to speak up for her beliefs or watch as a lot of good books are taken off the shelves. This book is a powerful reminder that books should be read by as many people as many times as possible. I recommend this book for all people, especially those who love to read.
