Synopsis

Synopsis

Who would have believed that The Adventure of  Huckleberry Finn could cause the worst crisis in the  history of George Mason High School? Certainly not  Barney Roth, editor of the school paper. But when  a small but vocal group of students and parents  decide that the book is racist, sexist, and  immoral--and should be removed from reading lists and the  school library--Barney takes matters into his own  hands.



When the Huck Finn issue  comes up for a hearing, Barney decides to print his  story about previous censorship efforts at school.  He's sure that investigative reporting and  publicity can help the cause. But is he too late to turn  the tide of censorship?
