Read the Reviews

I think it's time to start talking about actual challenged books and the best way to begin (I believe) is to read reviews of said books to get an idea of how they are greeted when released. First in this series of posts is "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince." From the moment this series was introduced, it has been challenged, in most part due to its magical content. These books are works of fiction, they are fantasy and yet woven into this make-believe world of wizards and muggles is a time-tested theme of good vs. evil and certainly a most intriguing coming-of-age story.
Here's a link to a review at TeenReads:

While you're on this sight take some time to read about other reviewed/challenged books.
