Banned Books Week: Internet Girls series (AND Free Friday!)

   
Every Friday we review a new book and give a copy of the book away. This Friday, to celebrate Banned Books Week, we are giving away the set of books that were most challenged in libraries during the last year. To get these books, it's simple: just be the first to fill out the form at the bottom of the page.  

Most Challenged Book(s) of the last year: Internet Girls series (ttyl, ttfn, l8r, g8r) by Lauren Myracle

Told entirely in instant messages, ttyl, ttfn, and l8r, g8r follow the friendship of Zoe, Maddie and Angela.

People have challenged the books and wanted them banned on the grounds of nudity, sexual explicitness, offensive language, drug use, and content unsuited to the intended age group.

 THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST! A WINNER HAS ALREADY BEEN SELECTED. CONGRATS TO MICHELLE!

The Internet Girls series appears to show a cool new way for people to read. But my concern is that while most teen are excellent text messagers there are some that could find the book challenging and difficult to read. Most people in the world (mostly older people) dont do text messenging and will find it hard to relate to it.
