I am happy with the results and I have watched it spark quite a few discussions among the teens. It is a simple way to get them thinking about having the freedom to read and what might happen if that is challenged or taken away. One of the No answers was -“I think that defending a book is important but there are more important things that I would risk jail time defending than something like Twilight.”  (I might have giggled a bit over that response!)
