Ban This Book by Alan Gratz is one of the best CT Nutmeg Award books I've read! What if your favorite book series was removed from the school library shelves and banned forever?? A 4th-Grader fights back when From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg is challenged by a well-meaning parent and taken off the shelves of her school library. The growing list of removed books includes such popular books as Captain Underpants, Goosebumps, Artemis Fowl, Matilda, and Junie B. Jones as many more are added everyday!! Amy Anne is shy and soft-spoken, but don’t mess with her when it comes to her favorite book in the whole world. Amy Anne and her secret committee of the "B.B.L.L." (the Banned Books Locker Library) wage a battle for the books that will make you laugh and shout out-loud as they hatch a plan to reverse the school board's decision to remove any books from the school library! Read this book and get a taste of Censorship and taking a stand for something you believe in.
