    Description


    Neal Barton just wants to read in peace. Unluckily for him, some local Christian activists are trying to get his favorite fantasy series banned from the Americus public library on grounds of immoral content and heresy. Something has to be done, and it looks like quiet, shy Neal is going to have to do it. With youth services librarian Charlotte Murphy at his back, Neal finds himself leading the charge to defend the mega-bestselling fantasy series that makes his life worth living.

    This is a funny, gripping, and relatable tale of life and local politics in middle America,

    " Reed's] ear for the speech of teenagers is especially sharp, rendering the scenes from high school the most consistently true-to-life and painfully hilarious in the book." - The Comics Journal
