And here’s a title I’ve been meaning to read (I KNOW!)

2)      Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi

  Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi

Here’s another important book that I feel like teens need to read in order to gain insight
into the lives of kids in the Middle East. Here’s why it’s continually challenged: Reasons: gambling, offensive language, political viewpoint. Additional reasons: “politically, racially, and socially offensive,” “graphic depictions”

I just can’t EVEN with these people. If you’ve read this it qualifies as a diversity read.

PS. GRAPHIC NOVEL!!
