New "Huckleberry Finn" edition removes the “n-word”

There’s a battle over what your kids should read in school and which words they should be exposed to.

It’s a battle that revolves around one of the greatest American novels ever written, Mark Twain’s  "Huckleberry Finn."

You may have read it as a child, but increasingly schools across the country are choosing not to include it in their curriculums because of its use of the n-word, which is used more than 200 times in the book.

Now, the editors of New South books are doing something about that.

They're publishing a new edition of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer", and "Huckleberry Finn,” and replacing the word with “slave.”

The move is already causing controversy and we want to hear from you.

What do you think about the change? Give us your feedback and we’ll read some of your responses today on CNN Newsroom at 10am with Kyra Phillips.
