I am on the run. The police are chasing me because they think I’m a terrorist.
The trouble all began when my Dad hid the writer of a book called The Exploded in our house. It inspired a terrorist attack on London. That’s why it’s a BANNED book.
We live in dangerous times. The state says books have to be sweetness and light, so they don’t inspire teenagers to commit violent crime. Get caught reading a banned book and you go to jail.
I thought they were wrong. How much harm can a book do?
Then I read one. Now I’m about to commit murder. Now I know better.
BOOKS ARE DANGEROUS.
