The American Library Association has released its annual list of most challenged books, and it includes titles both recent ( The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian , the Twilight series) and classic ( Brave New World ). Topping the 2010 list is And Tango Makes Three , a children's book about a same-sex penguin couple and its adopted baby. Every year, the ALA ranks the most challenged books in the country, with "challenge" defined as "a formal, written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that a book or other material be restricted or removed because of its content or appropriateness." The ALA received 348 challenges last year. Here are the 10 most challenged books of 2010: <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
