Before I forget, many children’s books have also been banned! These are books that aren’t necessarily in the Young Adult section, but you may recognize them from elementary or middle school and they are important nonetheless. A link to the full list: Frequently Challenged Children’s Books
Here are some of the ones I remember reading personally:
- The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
- The Giver by Lois Lowry
- Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park
I actually didn’t really like any of those books all that much myself, but that doesn’t mean other people shouldn’t read them!
