'Twilight' most challenged book

The 'Twilight' saga books are No. 5 on the annual list of books drawing the most complaints from parents and educators according to an article today in 'USA Today'.

A 'challenge'  is defined by the American Library Association as a "formal, written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness."
