Didn't care about the trajectory she was on—straight down into the same hell my book represented so well. But one day, she found that book. She saw herself in those pages, and suddenly knew she didn't want to be there.

Quote:

Books dealing with edgy, dark subject matter such as addiction, abuse, suicide, and teen prostitution can offer young adult readers a broader perspective on the world, but these qualities often make such books and their authors a target for would-be censors.

Quote:

Those who advocate such controls do not trust teenagers to make the right decisions. They often call for the banning of books without actually reading them, and even in rare instances where objecting parents have read the books in question, they fail to see beyond the sometimes controversial language and to appreciate the valuable message in many such works.

Quote:

Considering how long parents, teachers, and librarians prayed for children to turn off the TV, drop the Game Boy, discard the Walkman, unhook the cell phone, walk away from the mall, and start reading, it's perplexing that when it finally happened—and happened big time with 400- to 700-page books that were thicker than most classics, the critics didn't drop to their knees and thank the Lord for answering their prayers.

Quote:

Like the majority of people, I believe the Potter books are written in broad-stroke farce/fun. They won't turn children into the devil's disciples but will go a long way toward turning them into rabid readers. If we wrote textbooks like this, students would be volunteering for homework.

Though they read the words carefully, their written comments indicate they missed the intentions of the words, the themes, the concepts....They saw only what they wanted to see.

Quote:

A book that might be appropriate for ninth-graders might be very inappropriate for third-graders.... And that's why districts should have clearly defined censorship policies in place, defining a board to hear the complaint, read the offending book, and make a decision on its appropriateness.

include this to have a viewpoint against my argument.

On Sept. 12, 2001, the Dearborn, Mich., Police Department put officers on 12-hour shifts for the first time in years. The purpose was so police could provide extra patrol around mosques, the Arab-American business district and schools with the largest Arab-American populations.
