Summary
"Readers, librarians, and all those books that have drawn a challenge have a brand new hero.... Stand up and cheer, book lovers. This one's for you." ?Kathi Appelt, author of the Newbery Honor-winning The Underneath An inspiring tale of a fourth-grader who fights back when her favorite book is banned from the school library?by starting her own illegal locker library! It all started the day Amy Anne Ollinger tried to check out her favorite book in the whole world, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler , from the school library. That's when Mrs. Jones, the librarian, told her the bad news: her favorite book was banned! All because a classmate's mom thought the book wasn't appropriate for kids to read. Amy Anne decides to fight back by starting a secret banned books library out of her locker. Soon, she finds herself on the front line of an unexpected battle over book banning, censorship, and who has the right to decide what she and her fellow students can read. Reminiscent of the classic novel Frindle by Andrew Clements for its inspiring message, Alan Gratz' Ban This Book is a love letter to the written word and its power to give kids a voice. " Ban This Book is absolutely brilliant and belongs on the shelves of every library in the multiverse."?Lauren Myracle, author of the bestselling Internet Girls series, the most challenged books of 2009 and 2011 "A stout defense of the right to read." ? Kirkus Reviews "Gratz delivers a book lover's book that speaks volumes about kids' power to effect change at a grassroots level." ?Publisher's Weekly At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied
