Well, any books that have been banned, or have been challenged on more than one occaison or even a book that just deals with censorship (like "The Book Theif") would be a possiblity. The ALA (American Library Association) has a few lists of banned and challenged books and their site: http://www.ala.org/advocacy/banned . You might want to check that out
