Another YA challenged novel

What My Mother Doesn't Know (What My Mother Doesn't Know #1)

What My Mother Doesn’t Know

By: Sonya Sones

Genre: Young Adult/banned book

Pages: 261

Published: 2003

Read: August

5 out of 5

Written in prose, this book is very similar to Ellen Hopkins novels, which are also challenged.  This story may have bad language, sexual content and discussions of nudity, BUT it isn’t meant for 10 year olds. This book is written for teenagers or young adults. It discusses topics that almost every teenager experiences and/or feels.  The very essence of the novel is a lesson every parents SHOULD want their child to learn versus telling them they shouldn’t read the novel.  It’s about a teenager girl who falls in love with the unattractive outcast of her class, who is essential verbally bullied by classes. It teaches the readers to look at what a person is on the inside versus what they look like on the outside. Who can dispute that lesson??

Sonya Sones’ website is www.sonyasones.com. I am very excited to read more of her books and to see what other lessons she teaches our young adults.
