stephenie meyer 'Twilight' stakes a claim among the most 'challenged' booksStephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series is a worldwide phenomenon, with millions of copies in print, two hit movie adaptations, at least two more on the way, and merchandise ranging from T-shirts to body pillows.

The “Twilight” series made the American Library Association’s list of the most frequently challenged books of 2009.

Despite its reputation as a relatively chaste human-vampire romance, the series has drawn complaints for being “sexually explicit” and “unsuited to age group.”
