The top books challenged in 2018 were targeted especially for #LGBTQIA content & dealing with painful issues such as teen suicide. (sighing) The top challenged books include GEORGE by Alex Gino (transgender); A DAY IN THE LIFE OF MARLON BUNDO by Jill Twiss (LGBTQIA); THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas (anti-cop, profanity, drug use – but I think the real reason is racism); THIRTEEN REASONS WHY by Jay Asher (teen suicide), THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN by Sherman Alexie; DRAMA by Raina Telgemeir (LGBTQIA); THIS DAY IN JUNE by Gayle E Pitman (LGBTQIA); TWO BOYS KISSING by David Levithan (LGBTQIA). As always – don’t like a book? Don’t read it. But don’t prevent others who may need it, who might heal from it, from reading it.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
