'The Carnegie Medal Shortlist was released last week and we appealed to all First, Second and Third Forms to get involved and start reading and reviewing the shortlist.
We had a brief meeting at morning break today in the Cranham Library to see who was interested and the turn-out was amazing!
We now have a team of 20 readers including Mrs Riman and myself who have taken on the challenge to read all of the eight shortlisted books in eight weeks –submitting a detailed review online of each book as we finish them. We will all be meeting regularly every Tuesday in the Summer Term to discuss each book in detail, talk about our reviews we have posted and swap the books between each other.'
