In this society, somehow, going outside gets you a trip to the psychiatrist and being a pedestrian gets you arrested which is a very evident example of censoring people away from noticing too much around them, hence, the idea that being different is wrong. (STEWE-2) When this idea is implemented, individuality starts to decline and more and more people turn out like the same. Beatty explains to Montag the time when there was a “boy in [his] own school class who was exceptionally ‘bright’, did most of the reciting and answering while the others sat like so many leaden idols, hating him]” and it was “this bright boy [who was] selected for beatings and tortures after hours” (Bradbury 55). The reason behind this is because the government wants the people to be the same and so by doing this, no one questions the authority and in the government’s eyes, everyone is living in a happy wonderland.
In the first novel The Glass Castle, the father, Rex Walls is the one who creates the drama in his family. He is a negative influence for the children and his actions are unacceptable and because of his action are what creates the drama. For exam-ple at one point in the novel Rex tries to run Rose over with his car while she is pregnant and his kids witness everything, Jeanette states, “We shot forward toward Mom, who screamed and jumped out of the way. Dad turned around and went for her again” (Walls 43). Since Rex is not being sensible with the situation, and is acting poorly it creates a dysfunction in the family be-cause everyone is constantly fighting.
I went home that day very upset and my mom questioned me. I told my mom about the bully and she told me that the bully was only making fun of me because she was jealous of me.

Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, is a teenage boy who finds the faults in everything and everyone.
People don’t think that this topic should be allowed for their children to read in schools. But the champion among challenged or banned books is probably “Catcher in the Rye”: “obscene,” “blasphemous and undermines morality,” “centered around negative activity,” “anti-white,” “a filthy, filthy book” (What Are You Doing for Banned Books Week?). Catcher in the Rye has been banned multiple times just because of its’ profanity. It is considered a filthy book that consists of negative thoughts. “One of the most informative of these lists is “Banned and/or Challenged Books from the Radcliffe Publishing Course, Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century”(What

Catcher in the Rye There's a very large controversy over should catcher in the rye be banned or not and why so? Catcher in the rye was wrote by J.D. Salinger and he put many rude addresses in the book as well as some swearing but nothing too graphic or extreme. However there are many points in the book where he uses the lord's name in vain which I imagine would anger many religious members and parents because they don't want their children to accept that kind of language or behavior. Just one of the many times he uses this type of language for example when ackley says “stop calling me ackley kid god damn it.” (25)
Later in April, Donny got expelled from his school after the principal found beer and cigarettes in his locker. Furthermore, in June, Donny ran away from home. Therefore, the person who would be most to blame for Donny’s failures would be Daisy because she was worried about Donny’s problems too much and never listened to Donny. In the story, Daisy viewed every problem in a very protective way that she was unable to look at the problem in a calmer way.

Many argue that schools should not teach To Kill a Mockingbird due to another reason: lying about rape. Many call this novel “immoral literature because the plot is centered around rape” (Selk). According to Alice Randall, this novel “...encourages boys and girls to believe women lie about being raped.” This could cause young adults to neglect many “Believe the Victim” movements occuring today (Randall). Many argue that these concepts are too complex for young adults to understand.
The adventures of Huckleberry Finn was first introduced to the public in 1884 by Mark Twain. After going through hell trying to write the book, and its rocky release and low sales showed how controversial the book was even in his time. I believe Huck Finn should not be taught in public schools because the language used is offensive, is hard for for students to understand , and the book has been controversial since its beginning. Para 1 A High school in Philadelphia banned the book Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum due to its use of the N-word making students uncomfortable, and “the community costs of reading this book in 11th grade outweigh the literary benefits”.

Parents are over protective for their children these days. They want them to stay in the boundary, they have made. Most of the parents are blocking their son or daughter's way to the success by limiting their imaginations and creativity. They enthrall their children to be their puppet and do whatever they want, but they don't understand the fact that their children need to be gregarious to recognize this world. The novel “The Catcher in the Rye” by J. D. Salinger drew a lot of attention in these past years.
Do you think teenagers should read a story that has killing or a lot of inappropriate content and violence? Others think it's good to have them read it but I think teens shouldn't be reading this because “The Call of The Wild” and “After an outpouring of literary outrage, N.C. Country Reconsiders Book Ban” prove to me that these books are bad.
