Banned Books Week- Speak Out!
I have just been given a list of books from a reading teacher in Rode Island. Based on the list and the video on one of the links, some of those books would be banned and probably many others. The First Amendment allows us to read any book that we want and write anything we want. The Power of Speech fits into this because some people, I know I am one of them, speak their feelings in the books that they write. If we are not allowed to let those feelings be shown through writing or let are imaginations run wild, then we are in a box. I wouldn’t want to live in a box where thinking outside the box wasn’t allowed. Banned books week allows us to speak out. NO BOOK SHALL BE BANNED AND NO IMAGINATION SHALL BE LOCKED UP! that is my thoughts about banned books.

Have you rad Savvy by Ingrid Law? It is a really good fantasy book. I agree with your thoughts on banned books.

I write almost everyday, and would never give it up. My latest story so far that I'm working on is going to be called Wanderer, but it is not even close to being finished and once it is, i still will have to edit it. I have won a novel contest, which I am so excited about because then all i have to do is edit the novel, find an editor and get it published. I hope to grow up to be an author. I like homework and school, but I do not like the stress of it all, which i find kinda strange. I do not work well in groups, all my teachers and close friends know this fact quite well. My nickname in a Manga club that I joined, located at the East Pikes Peak library, is Silence which fits me pretty well.
