This is the part that makes me laugh:
If the parents that banned the book had thought about it a little, they would have realized that THEIR kids likely wouldn’t have read that book for anything - and would have complained loudly and continuously if they had been forced to read it. Seriously - their kids probably hate books anyway?!?!?!
But - instead they have made it into a desirable and sought after FORBIDDEN BOOK, which is the one book a kid like that might want to seek out to see what i so damn juicy about it.
