Transparency: The Most Controversial Books in America

Every year, libraries are asked to remove books from their shelves, because they are found to be inappropriate. These "challenges" can occur for any reason, and do not necessarily result in a book's removal from libraries. But the list of the 10 most challenged books in 2009 does show which books some parents find objectionable, and why they feel their kids shouldn't be reading them.
