Banned BooksUrning the ban in his favor by buying and lending banned books to students for a price As the banned books library grows and hidden feelings threaten the boys’ burgeoning partnership they discover that the challenges of growing up might outweigh the rewards of bucking the syst I liked Banned Books It was a very entertaining read and you learn a lot about books in this short little novel Now Banned Books stars Anthony Parker a normal gay kid who is attending an exclusive British boarding school for boys Everything in his life is normal and boring until he is caught reading a very controversial book by Miss LowryI liked Anthony He was smart young and naive He is in love with his straight best friend Rafe who loves him like a little brother I loved their relationship and Rafe is a really nice guy I liked Fritz He was uniue and a rebel with a cause He hated how society works and following its rules The one thing that turned me off about this novel was the ending It was so vague and you don't really know if Anthony got his happy ending after all I recommend this novel to anyone who wants to read a short story about a group of friends who rebel against society and follow their own rules

No way emotionally too stressful this really took me back to the days when you're feelings are running a frenzy and everything you are feeling is new and trying to work through them for the first timeThe book is sweet cute and had me smiling reading about these teenagers and their small rebellion against the establishment It is very well written and from an author who in my opinion obviously understands teenagers extremely well being a teacher by trade myselfIf I had this book to read in the school library I probably would have read a lot in school than I did This short story is worth the read for the fun factor and will have you sat there smiling laughing feeling good and reminiscing all the way to the school bell A copy of this book was provided by Harmony Ink Press through Dreamspinner Press for a fair and honest review
