Neil Barton lives in small-town America and has to face high school without his best friend. Making matters worse, his mom is one of many who want to ban his favorite book series from the local library. This is a story about friendship, censorship, identity and courage. It is a great choice when discussing ramifications of the First Amendment and free speech.
