Writer's Block: Book review

What (if any) books would you ban from a high school library? Are there certain subjects that you feel are inappropriate for teenagers regardless of literary merit?


Damn, I was going to say Twilight, but too many people beat me to it. ;)

No, really, you should look up lists of banned books... It's pretty hilarious what is on some of them.

I really see little point in trying to shield people from things. And people's views on what is "appropriate" are so varied. Okay, maybe erotica wouldn't have a place in a high school library. But I don't think literature should be banned simply because it has controversial content.
