Journal Entry 1 by winglytteltonwitchwing from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Saturday, September 26, 2015
I had never heard of this New Zealand author or the book until it was banned about a month ago. I was then curious to read it and managed to download a copy onto my kindle but only because I have a UK account as they were even stopping downloads if you were in NZ. It is a brilliant book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Yesterday I received a parcel from the US and the parcel contained two copies of the book. I have no idea who sent me the books as the parcel was addressed to my real name but I wish to thank them for the books.
After reading the book I just can't understand why the book was banned. The book subject is about a young boy caught between two different worlds who is subjected to bullying from other teenagers and also from his teachers. Yes there are swear words and a couple of sex scenes but they not the main theme of the book.

Like Lyttletonwitch, I only really heard about this book because it's been banned. Thanks very much for passing it on to me!
