*drives by again*

Never have I ever been more intrigued by a "challenged young adult books" list than this one. I mean, my default response to banned book lists is "GOOD RIDDANCE," because it's p. much the same 12 titles over and over again and other than Harry Potter, I am always in, like, 100% agreement that I personally would not care for the element that got it banned, so I'm always baffled by how many readers see this as extra-alluring instead of the helpful "caution: poison" label that it is.

But this one is very extensive and includes lots of older, out-of-print books as well as new and classics, allowing it to contain many titles I've either never heard of or know but have never seen mentioned as "challenged," and more importantly it seems aimed more at junior high. Banned books for young readers tend to be challenged more on grounds of "these themes are 2 Serious / Confusing For Young Minds," which translates to "short book that is well written and complex enough to enjoy as an adult." In other words, I would like to read just about everything on this one that I haven't already, because most of the ones I have read are real solid.
