Banned Books Week Hop

There is nothing that gets me more fired up that finding out a book has been challenged. Usually by a parent that hasn't even bothered to actually read the book-they "heard"  the book in question has what they deem inappropiate. Maddening!!
This will be a week of talking about banned and challenged books. BUT let's not forget to have some fun along with the serious. Mug of Moxie will be particiapting in Banned Books Week Hop also. Our lovely hosts I Read Banned Books and I Am A Reader, Not A Writer have organized this hop. Thank you very much! Below is an entire list of participates giving away all kinds of goodies. Please join us.
Now what I have up for grabs are books that have been "challenged" not banned. BUT a challenged book can be removed from a shelf-restrictions can be put on that book and a select few can only check it out.
We'll be discussing this more at length during the week.
Without further ado-
I will be giving away a copy of one of these fabulous books to a winner!!
The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
                                                       Hungar Games by Suzanne Collins
Crank by Ellen Hopkins
All these happen to be very good books. Books that should indeed be read.
So tell me which book would would choose if you won this giveaway. And please take the time to follow. I'm insecure and I need the love. Leave you GFC Name in comment section along with your contact information. Because I love these book so much I will choose at least two winners....maybe more.
This contest is open to International as well.
Have fun!
