Poll: Movies and TV Based on Recently Censored Books

Every year, the American Library Association tracks books that have been censored or challenged (attempts to censor or ban a book) by libraries, schools, colleges, and universities. The following films or TV series are all based on books that appeared in the Top 10 Most Challenged Books lists at least once between 2010 and 2019. Which do you think is the most important to keep away from censors and in the hands of readers and filmmakers?
