To Those on Both Sides of the Book Removal Issue by Author Ellen Hopkins

Author Ellen Hopkins wrote the best case against the current scourge of book banning. Most, if not all, of her deep dives into the challenges teens face are banned. Why? Because they’re real. There is no sugar coating. There is no topic she refuses to explore. She has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of young adults who needed to read what she has written in book after book. In this essay, she unapologetically stands tall in the case against book banning. Please read, and if you ever face a book banning enthusiast, you’ll be armed with the truth.
