A Comprehensive List of Banned YA Books

Happy Banned Book Week! Banned Book Week started in 1982 as a result of the increase in the number of books people were trying to get banned from schools and libraries. We’re celebrating the freedom to read by sharing all of the modern YA banned books we could find. We used information provided by libraries and the American Library Association’s Office of Intellectual Freedom to find banned and challenged books.

We encourage everyone to read banned books because if someone wants a book banned, there’s usually something important inside the cover for you to learn. Always question people who try to ban books and especially question their intent.

“Banning books gives us silence when we need speech. It closes our ears when we need to listen. It makes us blind when we need sight.” — Stephen Chbosky, author of Perks of Being a Wallflower

It’s prom season now so we’re celebrating by sharing some YA books that feature this important coming of age dance. Prom is such a prominent night for high school students and it’s a big deal to the characters in the books below. So get out your sparkly dresses and fancy tuxes, we’re going back to high school in these stories. Do you know of a prom YA book that we missed? Let us know in the comments!

1. The Night When No One Had Sex by Kalena Miller

The Night When No One Sex skipped over the dance and went right to this group of friends getting ready for a crazy night without parental supervision. Prom is so romanticized and Miller chose to turn it into a comedy of errors. Right after the dance, this group of friends goes to a cabin in the woods to all have sex with their prom dates. Unfortunately, nothing goes as planned, making it a night they’ll never forget. This book is completely hilarious and is perfect for people who want to read about an unconventional prom night.

A. Ash, Killing November by Adriana Mather

We loved Ash in Killing November and Hunting November. He’s sweet, a total badass and always there for November. The two don’t have the easiest time since someone is always out to get them, but they protect each other no matter what. We loved Ash’s quick wit and ability to read people. He’s the perfect YA book boyfriend for a thriller.

Glimpsed by G.F. Miller was fun, sweet and such a refreshing book because we’ve never read anything like it. If you’re looking for a creative and quirky YA romance, this book is for you!

In exchange for helping the adorkable Noah win back his ex, he will keep his mouth shut about Charity’s fairy godmother status.
