Review: Have you ever said, "I love this book?" Now, imagine that book that you love so much getting banned from your school. Wouldn't you hate that? The book You Can't Read This by Pamela Dell will tell you all about America's most loved books such as Uncle Tom's Cabin and Huckleberry Finn by Tom Sawyer getting banned in schools.
You Can't Read This explains many classic and modern books being banned from different schools because it includes something bad about someone or something. Sometimes book banning could go so badly that people start burning other books. For example, people in New Mexico burned Harry Potter books in a church because they believed them to be satanic books and they felt this would protect their youth.
I generally do not enjoy nonfiction books, but I would still recommend it to everyone because You Cant Read This by Pamela Dell offers excellent knowledge and detail about why a book has been banned or put on trial. Also, You Can't Read This is a good book was because a lot of important pictures are in it, and that keeps the reader interested, and it even kept me interested. Overall, I think schools would benefit from buying this book because of its high interest. You Can't Read This by Pamela Dell is fantastic, so go buy it.
