Unique πŸ“š Books for Teens Not 🚫 Found on a Syllabus πŸ“‹ ...


Many high school teachers hand out reading lists at the beginning of summer or syllabi at the beginning of the semester that include books your class must read. But I bet most of these books won't appear on any of those lists! For various reasons, the following books have been banned at some point for their content. However, these novels are still essential parts of our culture and literary history that I recommend every teenager read.

1. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

document, Poignant, and, hilarious, threaded,

Why was it banned? Considered "anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, and just plain filthy"

"Slaughterhouse-Five" is one of Kurt Vonnegut's most famous and beloved novels. It's an antiwar novel that jumps around scenes from the life of the book's main character, Billy Pilgrim. This is a difficult book to summarize quickly, but that really just makes it all the more worth reading! In an nutshell, the novel deals with shell-shock, prisoners of war, and time travel (but not the way you might expect it).
