What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones

by Banned Library in

A story told with sex and masturbation and evil wizards being shot down after stealing a baby... All told in verse. It's totally evil and cool.


2003 - California - Removed from the library shelves of the Rosedale Union School District in Bakersfield for "Ice Capades," a poem about a teenage girl's breasts reacting to cold

2004 - Texas - Challenged at the Bonnette Junior High School library in Deer park for language and masturbation.

2007 - Wisconsin - Available on to 7th and 8th graders of Spring Hill School library after a parent complained about sexual themes and wanted it removed.
