Award description

The ALA's list of the 100 most frequently challenged books between 1990-2000. Note, more than 100 actual books are listed, as the ALA lumps a series as one work (i.e. all four of the books that fell under The Stupids were subject to challenges, but only have a single listing as the series on the list).

See prior list for 1990-1999 challenged books here.
