Date Of Attempted Band
2007, 2009, 2012 banned from Marshall Libraries
Banned from Picayune junior High School 2011
I think the banning of the book is arguable. The parents do have a good point on banning the book. I understand why the parents would think this book is bad. However some parents might not mine their kids reading the book so i think it should be up to the kids if they should be aloud to read it.
