Book Blogger Hop


Hosted by: Crazy For Books.com



“In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?


I'm joining in on the hop this week, and my favorite banned book is 






The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian" by Sherman Alexie

You can read my review HERE


Goodreads Description:


With his first foray into teen literature, acclaimed author Sherman Alexie packs a punch in this absorbing novel about a Native American boy searching for a brighter future. At once humorous and stirring, Alexie's novel follows Junior, a resident of the Spokane reservation who transfers out of the reservation's school -- and into a nearby rich, all-white farm school -- in order to nurture his desire to become a cartoonist. Junior encounters resistance there, a backlash at home, and numerous family problems -- all the while relaying his thoughts and feelings via amusing descriptions and drawings. Having already garnered a National Book Award for Young Adult Literature, this moving look at race and growing up is definitely one to pick up.
