In 2002, controversy regarding J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series arose in Cedarville, Arkansas, when a parent expressed concerns about the messages that books about witchcraft were sending to young students at an elementary school. In response, the school board banned the series from public school libraries-but a school librarian, assisted by a fourth-grade girl, fought back with a federal lawsuit and won.

Written by the lawyer who prosecuted the case, this book details the Harry Potter ban and the lawsuit that returned the books to Cedarville schools. It goes behind the scenes to show readers how lawsuits are really conducted and looks specifically at cases used as precedent in Counts v. Cedarville.
