The Editors - Colchester Academy

Hi! We are "The Editors". We go to a school called Colchester Academy and enjoy spending most of our time reading and writing stories. So far, our overall favourite book is "One" by Sarah Crossan, although some of us really love many of the other Carnegie books too. We think that all of the shortlisted Carnegie books are incredible and are some of the best novels that we have read. We have all really enjoyed participating in the Carnegie organisation and can't wait to do the same next year with the new books. We are already clearing some space in the library for them!
