Salt to the Sea predicted to win
Some students showed deep interest in the subject of Ruta Sepetys' novel even before they discovered it was Carnegie shortlisted. In agreement that sad events are described, her characterisation was admired and her storytelling held their fascination. A worthy, anticipated win!

Lies We Tell Ourselves
Having just read this masterpiece of a book, I am ready to share my love of 'Lies We Tell Ourselves' with the rest of the world. This book is extremely creative while still staying true to the facts of that time era. It tells the tale of two girls who have to fight for love and equality in a life filled with prejudice. 100% worth reading. One word of warning - do not rush the ending! Ending is definitely the best part of this book and if you rush it then all the magic is lost. Take your time and enjoy reading this wonderful book.
