Banned Books

THE NOTEBOOK GIRLS

2011

Reclassified from the young adult section to the adult nonfiction section in the Waukee (IA) Public Library because of a complaint citing "foul language" and "cussing." The book includes frank discussions about adolescent sex, drinking, and drug use. Body image, sexual orientation, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks are also addressed.

2007

Challenged, but retained at the Cape May (NJ) County Library. The book is composed of the entries four NYC high school students made in a shared journal in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
