Description
Who would have believed that The Adventure ofnbsp;nbsp;Huckleberry Finn could cause the worst crisis in thenbsp;nbsp;history of George Mason High School? Certainly notnbsp;nbsp;Barney Roth, editor of the school paper. But whennbsp;nbsp;a small but vocal group of students and parentsnbsp;nbsp;decide that the book is racist, sexist, andnbsp;nbsp;immoral--and should be removed from reading lists and thenbsp;nbsp;school library--Barney takes matters into his ownnbsp;nbsp;hands. When the Huck Finn issuenbsp;nbsp;comes up for a hearing, Barney decides to print hisnbsp;nbsp;story about previous censorship efforts at school.nbsp;nbsp;He's sure that investigative reporting andnbsp;nbsp;publicity can help the cause. But is he too late to turnnbsp;nbsp;the tide of censorship?
