The book is a waste of time.
Ever want to know what it's like to be on the inside of censorship? This book really wasn't very good. The characters aren't very realistic, the reader also isn't really made to feel anything towards characters, and the author is very stereotypical. The story is placed at George Mason High School. Mostly just the blacks of the school have a problem with the book Huckleberry Finn. So they try to get the book banned at the school.
The way most of the students act in the book is not the way that real people would usually act, especially in high school. Everybody is made out as very stereotyped people. Everyone works hard in the book to get their side to win. The reader is able to see why both sides are right and choose their own side. Then the reader is shown how much censorship has already happened at that school. The reader can also see why censorship can go too far. Then news reports all over the nation come to see what the school decides about the book. In the end the school board committee decides not to ban Huck Finn.
The book The Day They Came to Arrest the Book by Nat Hentoff is ok. It is a good to book to learn about censorship and the pros and cons of censorship.
