TGIF (24) Issue Books


TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by Ginger at GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.


This Friday's Question:  Issue Books: Which books have you found to be very rewarding when it comes to tackling tougher issues?


My first thoughts on this went straight to Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.  I picked this one up after hearing it was on the banned list and read it.  I was thoroughly surprised at how well the book was written and couldn't understand for the life of me why they would ban it from schools (not sure if it has changed since) because taking a book away from teens reading it doesn't take the problems themselves away.  Because this sort of thing happens alot more than people realise.  That's my thoughts anyhow.

This is the only one I can actually think of.  I need to get more books like this on my reading pile I think!


Throwing the question out to all of you:
Which books have you found to be very rewarding when it comes to tackling tougher issues?
