This fourth grader takes a stand against censorship when From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg is challenged by a well-meaning parent and removed from her school library. Amy Anne is shy and soft-spoken, but don’t mess with her when it comes to her favorite book in the whole world. Amy Anne and her lieutenants wage a battle for the books when they start a secret banned-books locker library, make up ridiculous reasons to ban every single book in the library to make a point, and make a real difference in their community.
