Secret locker library?!
from the BoingBoing blog:
A teenager asked Yahoo! Questions whether maintaining a lending library in his school locker is illegal (as opposed of merely in contravention of school regulations). A school friend asked to borrow off him The Catcher in the Rye, one of the books in the banned list, and one thing led to another..."This happened a lot and my locker got to overflowing with the banned books, so I decided to put the unoccupied locker next to me to a good use. I now have 62 books in that locker, about half of what was on the list. I took care only to bring the books with literary quality." (He refuses to carry Twilight ;)
How far would you go to defend your right to read what you want? Would you risk getting kicked out of school?
Some of the awesome books he has stashed in the secret locker library:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Interview with the Vampire
The Hunger Games
