20 Kids’ Books You Didn’t Realize Were Messed Up Until Later

Lord of the Flies

The story of a bunch of young boys marooned on a desert island, this book is studied often in school, but it’s easy to see why it sometimes scars kids. In the story, the children form a hierarchy, and eventually end up killing a weaker boy in a terror-filled frenzy. This is a beautiful, important book, but it’s definitely a little messed, and could make children paranoid on the playground for months afterwards.
