AbstractBooks and other materials are often challenged, censored, or banned on the grounds that they are inappropriate for children and teens, and the most commonly-cited reasons include sexual content, objectionable language, and violence. But throughout history, books have also been challenged on political grounds. In the realm of Young Adult literature, the censoring of political topics is sometimes less overt.
