Considering the topic is one of the most hot button political issues in North America, I'm not at all surprised that people have tried to ban this book from school libraries. But as with many book challenges, it sounds like many of the challengers haven't actually read it. If they had (with an open mind), they would see that it's a balanced exploration of the Palestinian side, and that the story calls for nonviolent responses to the complicated conflict. This interview gives a little more information about the author's background and research, which I find persuasive.

I think I would actually give the book 3 stars for how much I enjoyed it, but I tacked on another star because I think it's a story that needs telling.
