Perfect middle reader that encourages kids to have a voice, take a stand and have a basic understanding of the Constitution. Although this book would argue that it (or any book) cannot actually make anyone do anything. When 4th grader Amy Anne Ollinger’s favorite book disappears from her School library she learns it has been challenged (and quickly removed/banned - semantics she argues with her principal) when the school board forgoes standard protocol. More books follow and Amy and her friends Rebecca and Danny pool their own books and money to create a locker library of the banned books to lend to classmates. Ingenious! How it all blows up and gets resolved is a testament to working together, believing in what you are doing and appreciating the Bill of Rights. “Good books shouldn’t be hidden away. They should be read by as many people as many times as possible.” (91) Gratz does his homework - all books mentioned here have been challenged or banned in the last 30 years. And guest appearance by Dav Pilkey is a wink to writer network. Dedicated to librarians everywhere! ( )

Amy Anne arrives at school one day to find that her favorite book had been pulled off the shelf and was being challenged by the parent of another student. The parent who challenges this book is also challenging several other books in the library and Amy Anne is heartbroken at her favorite books disappearing. When given the opportunity to speak to the school board, fear takes over and she is unable to stand up and speak.

Amy Anne and her friends find a new and creative way to make sure that the books that have been banned from the library are still available to their friends and classmates. Read this book to find out what happens when Amy Anne gets herself into a bit of hot water and her creative solution to making sure that nobody can decide what a child can or cannot read (except their parents).

Amy Anne Ollinger is quiet, loves to read and always follows the rules. That is until her favorite book gets banned from the school library. In the days that follow, as more and more books are banned, Amy Anne decides she has to do something about it. Running her own banned book library out of her locker, Amy Anne begins to find - and use - her voice to stand up for what she believes in.

This is a great read for kids and helps them understand why books get banned and to perhaps think more deeply on when and how and if books should ever be banned. In fact one of the issues in the book is that the school board abandons its own review process for banning books and instead gives in to the pressure of one very vocal parent on a book-banning mission.

My main criticism of the book would be that the main characters (Amy Anne and her friends) are fourth graders, but they seem to be written as older than fourth grade - much more mature than your average fourth grader. They might be better cast as 6th or even 7th graders (although the book Amy Anne is obsessed with, From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, is on par with fourth grade.) My only other thought would be that Amy Anne is intended to be a young Black girl. This is portrayed on some covers of the book, but not the one I had. However this is only very subtly hinted at in the book with minor references to Amy Anne's hairstyle or that her mother is lighter-skinned than Amy Anne or other very low key mentions. I don't think Amy Anne's race is ever directly mentioned in the book and while the book certainly doesn't need to be about race, the way the author seems to skirt around it seemed a bit awkward, as well as a missed opportunity to give the character a little more depth.

After Unbound, this was the second of the 2020 Nutmeg nominees I read. Without rehashing everything I said in our Blackboard thread, I felt it was an enjoyable book. Throughout it, I kept thinking how shameful it is that a book on censorship is still topical in 2020. If I could suggest a change, however, it would be that Gratz should have written it in a way that did not make it feel like it was geared more towards librarians than kids. Still, this is a book that I would surely revisit as a practicing professional. ( )
