It’s Banned Books Week, the ‘national celebration of the freedom to read’. It’s a US thing – for whatever reason, very few (if any) books are challenged here – but it allows us to make a pretty interesting list of some of our favourite books. A list we call Top 10 Books Banned in the USA (That We Have In Our Young Adult Collection).

1. His Dark Materials Trilogy, by Phillip Pullman
2. TTYL, TTFN, and L8R, G8R, by Lauren Myracle
3. The Scary Stories series, by Alvin Schwartz
4. The Gossip Girl series, by Cecily Von Ziegesar
5. The Catcher in the Rye, by J. D. Salinger
6. The Chocolate War, by Robert Cormier
7. The Alice series, by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
