About the Book

A fourth grader fights back when From the Mixed-Up Files of
Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg is challenged by a well-meaning
parent and taken off the shelves of her school library. Amy Anne is shy and
soft-spoken, but don’t mess with her when it comes to her favorite book 
in the whole world. Amy Anne and her lieutenants wage a battle for the books
that will make you laugh and pump your fists as they start a secret banned
books locker library, make up ridiculous reasons to ban every single
book in the library to make a point, and take a stand against
censorship.
