Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances....

Just as good as I remember. Although I have read all the books, I can't wait to listen to the rest of them! The books are MUCH better than the show.

It all started the day Amy Anne Ollinger tried to check out her favorite book in the whole world, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, from the school library. That's when Mrs. Jones, the librarian, told her the bad news: her favorite book was banned, all because a classmate's mom thought the book wasn't appropriate for kids to read. Amy Anne decides to fight back by starting a secret banned books library out of her locker.

I read this book because it is on the 18-19 EBOB list, and I work closely with those kiddos at my school. The story itself is one that I think a lot of children can relate to- especially those with siblings. The main character feels like she has no place of her own at home, and spends her afternoons at school in the library reading. When she finds out that her favorite book has been banned, she is crushed. During the story, this little girl finds her voice, and learns to stand up for herself. It has a lot of humor, and also teaches that you can't always judge a book by its cover!
