    Read Sherman Alexie's Absolutely True Diary....thought it was great...couldn't figure out why it was banned since it really only mentioned the the word and no description of the act....duh! The bullying talk and the not very positive parental role models...perhaps...but he does overcome obstacles...so shouldn't that count for something?

    Anyway...I like reading about what is new in books, as a retired reading teacher, I really am concerned about the banning of books over trivial reasons but no banning for books that are grossly incorrect or "revisionist" histories like the founding fathers were Christian or that the South "let" the North win or that the Holocaust never happened shit....or even Lincoln "cornering" Grant in the Oval Office BS by a certain Right Wing A--hole in his new book "The Death of Lincoln". We seem to really have our priorities all backward.

    Thanks...checked out your links...made for good reading!
