Insurgent by Veronica Roth

by Banned Library in


What would happen if one of the Hogwart's Houses started using the Matrix to fuck up and control the other houses? Of course you would get something that wants to be a society based on the insane asylum from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest! Follow Tris as she does little but cower in the face of adversity and pine for her boyfriend in Insurgent.


Banned

The only instance of the word "banned" coming up in context of this book online was for people threatening to remove comments from comment sections of articles where people took this teen novel too seriously.

That being said, it does contain violence, gun use, parental abuse, distrust of authority, distrust of smart people, borderline sexual situations, and long passages about dumb teenage lust that sounded okay when Shakespeare wrote them 400 years ago but kids today should know better.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

by Banned Library in


In the near future, Chicago is divided into factions who value random virtues. Tris, our hero, shows aptitude for various virtues making her Divergent, so she switches from the boring people to the crazy people. While in crazy person land, Tris learns to shoot things and beat up things. Can she overcome her fears and wanting to bone down with her instructor to stop the plot to destroy society? Listen to the podcast and find out!

Or read the book. Whichever.


Banned

The book is full of violence, death, resisting authority, talking back to your elders, underage drinking, sex talk, and bad plotting. The last one is subjective, but I objected to it.

No exact cases
