A new shadowing year begins!
We had our first meeting last week and selected our books based on the opening paragraphs only. Ghost Hawk seemed to be a popular choice. This week we are going to be adding our first reviews to the website - hopefully!

We had a quiz on all of the shortlisted books today. Well done Emi for coming first with a grand score of 17 out of 24. It did help that Emi had read all of the shortlist!

Not a great selection???
In our meeting yesterday lunchtime, it was said that the shortlisted books that have been read so far don't meet the standards of past winners. Will there be a book worthy of winning this time?

Bedale High School Carnegie shadowing debut!
This is the first year that we have shadowed the Carnegie awards, but I hope there will be many more to come!
Our first meeting generated lots of thoughtful discussion about writing styles and why certain writing appeals to us. We all had different views about the opening paragraphs of the shortlist and I can sense some furious debate to come...
