One thought on “Top Ten Banned Books of 2014

  1. It makes me sad to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower on the list, it’s such a moving book and one I have returned to several times. I think it deals brilliantly with how hard growing up and finding who you are can be, as well as handling tough issues in a sensitive manner.
