What do these books have in common?
These were six of the Top Eleven Most Challenged Books in 2018, as reported by the American Library Association Office for Intellectual Freedom. These are also books you can freely borrow from your School Library. Exercise your rights and freedoms, and celebrate the joy of making your own choices about what you want to read.

From the American Libarary Association:
Banned Books Week (September 22-28, 2019) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
