Top Controversial Books List at has a list of books that received the most removal requests by libraries.  While I think there are specific books that may not be the most appropriate reading material per age group, I don’t ever think a book should be banned/removed nor do I think that books not appropriate for an age group can ever/should be controlled.  Every book has its place.  A number of books on this list are actually favorites of mine:

  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  • To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
