Wednesday Morsel Answer Time

That's right it was indeed--
The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron

I just LOVE that part. Don't you?

Now I'm dying to know why it's been banned in some libraries! I've read it, but what did I miss? What am I forgetting?

And how on earth could anyone ban The Giver?????????? That's positively criminal.


  1. Apparently people balked about the use of the word "scrotum." Bah!

    As for The Giver, I believe parents had a problem with the euthanasia and suicide of the sick and elderly. And the bathtub dream part made a few people blush.

    It makes my heart hurt . . . I LOVE both those books.

  2. Interesting. I don't even remember the word "scrotum" being in there.

    I can see parents being concerned, I guess, but it's not like 2nd graders are reading it. We read it in class in like 5th or 6th grade. Really, by that age kids these days are exposed to a whole lot worse.

    Makes me wonder sometimes if these same parents are as picky about what their kids watch. I would hope that their concern is not limited to what books teachers are introducing to their kids.
