Ban This Book by Gratz
It all started the day Amy Anne Ollinger tried to check out her favorite book, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, from the school library. Mrs. Jones, the librarian, told her the bad news: her favorite book was banned! Just because a classmate’s mom thought the book wasn’t appropriate.
Amy Anne fights back by starting a secret banned books library in her locker. The battle of the books escalates when she engineers a campaign to challenge every book in the school library, often under the most ridiculous of pretexts: The Lorax portrays the timber industry in a negative light! The mouse in the room in Goodnight Moon is a health code violation!
Soon, Amy Anne and her friends find themselves on the front lines of a battle over book banning, censorship, and who has the right to decide what they can read. Reminiscent of the classic novel Frindle by Andrew Clements, Ban This Book is a love letter to the written word and its power to give kids a voice.
