It’s Banned Book Week! While I’d normally blog about hoping my own books get banned by fidgety parents someday (all publicity is good publicity, amirite?), I was encouraged by my fellow bloggesses over at YA Stands to write about a banned book for my semi-monthly blog post.
Until a friend of our family back home told me he would never let his children read it, for “atheist undertones.” I was aghast. An intelligent person–someone I respected–was going to keep this book away from his children because he was afraid they would be exposed to viewpoints other than his own; that it might influence them in some damaging way.
Read the post here. Hope to see you over at YA Stands!
