Well that's it and Cuckoo Song remains our clear winner, despite strong support for Apple & Rain and Tinder. Lower in the ranking Buffalo Soldier was fighting it out with When Mr Dog Bites and More Than This. The Fastest Boy in the World did not move quickly at all! (Mrs S.)

The Middle of Where?
We discussed The Middle of Nowhere this week which nobody wished to champion. Nobody felt it was worth more than 4 out of 5 so it's not a winner for us.

A Busy Week
Two meetings this week. We've already discussed Apple and Rain (much-loved) and More Than This (love it or hate it) and tomorrow we're on to Mr Dog. Will this be an excuse to air words not generally permitted in school? (Mrs S)

Cuckoo Song - loved the cover
This week it was the turn of Cuckoo Song but what a pity that only 2 of the group who had read it managed to get here. Sorry to the rest for the inevitable spoilers. Let's hope we have a bigger turn out for More Than This next week. (Mrs S)

Let the arguments begin!
A few weeks in and already some of us have read almost all the books so we're ready to start talking about them. This week it's Tinder - our firm favourite to win the Greenaway! (Mrs S)
