Banned Tween Reads

Banned Books Week is September 23-29, 2018. Celebrated annually, the week serves as a time for everyone in the book community to come together and celebrate the freedom of ideas and expression. Each year, books are challenged and sometimes banned because of the themes, plots, or characters inside it.  Below is a list of 10 challenged or banned tween reads, that you should check out this Banned Books Week.
