Publisher's Summary

A bold, timely novel about speaking up and coming out as parents lobby to ban a beloved book from the school curriculum by New York Times-bestselling author David Levithan.

When Donovan left his copy of The Adventurers on the kitchen counter, he didn't think his mom would read it—much less have a problem with it. It's just an adventure novel about two characters trying to stop an evil genius...right?  

But soon the entire town is freaking out about whether the book's main characters are gay, Donovan's mom is trying to get the book removed from the school curriculum, and Donovan is caught in the middle.  

Donovan doesn't really know if the two boys fall in love at the end or not—but he does know this: even if they do, it shouldn't matter. The book should not be banned from school.  

Interweaving three connected storylines, David Levithan delivers a bold, fun, and timely story about taking action (whether it's against book censors or deadly alligators...), being brave, and standing up for what's right.

😍

An amazing and important story that all parents of young people should read. it's short, but sweet and lovely, and I couldn't listen fast enough. narrators were not my favorites - might be a better physical read.

Thanks

This will be a superb book to use in an important discussion of intellectual freedom and freedom of information with 5th graders in my school and thousands of others. It’s pitch perfect.

Timely story about book banning

David Levithan once again proves himself the master of contextualizing difficult queer issues for young readers. Wish I had access to his books as a kid, but I’m glad I have them now because even as an adult he’s able to mend much of the lingering pain I felt growing up. Wonderfully narrated audiobook. Highly recommended!
