Answers in the Pages (Paperback)
Author: David Levithan
When Donovan left his copy of The Adventurers on the kitchen counter, he didn’t think his mom would read it — much less try to have it banned! It’s just an adventure novel about two characters trying to stop an evil genius. But soon the entire town is freaking out about whether the book’s main characters are gay, with Donovan’s mom trying to get the book removed from the school curriculum and Donovan caught in the middle. Donovan doesn’t really know if the two boys fall in love at the end or not — but he does know this: even if they do, it shouldn’t matter. The book should not be banned. Your young readers will be captivated by this incredible tale about taking action, being brave, and standing up for what you believe is right.
