Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
After her principal bans a number of books from the school library, bibliophile student Clara joins forces with her friends to start an underground library.
When the principal at Lupton Academy posts a "prohibited media" hit list, Clara Evans is horrified. Titles like "Their eyes were watching God" and "The perks of being a wallflower" have been pulled from the library and aren't allowed on the school's premises. Students caught with the contraband will be punished. Clara starts an UnLib-- an underground library-- in her locker. When one of the books she loves most is connected to a tragedy she never saw coming, Clara is forced to face her role in it. -- adapted from jacket

    Book-lover Clara is eagerly anticipating her senior year at Lupton Academy. She's been short-listed for a prestigious scholarship, her Tiny Little Libraries program is a success, and her favorite author just published a new book. But on the first day back, Clara stumbles across a confidential email to staff and teachers at Lupton, declaring a new policy on prohibited media, including a list of 50 books to be removed from the library. Defying the powers that be, Clara launches an underground library out of her locker, having no idea how much of an impact she is about to have on the student body and the school itself. Although she feels frustrated by some unexpected consequences, Clara is reminded by her friend that, Books are wild things. You can't tame them. In this thought-provoking novel, Connis (The Temptation of Adam, 2017) tackles themes of censorship, resistance, and the power of the written word through a diverse cast of characters, bold prose, and humor that breaks up even the darkest moments. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
