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 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? A book that is particularly important to consider from a Christian perspective. What is an appropriate approach to censorship both from a legal and moral perspective?
