The Heritage Hive Heroes 2017

Our group meet every Wednesday to discuss the books over biscuits. Railhead was an early favourite but Beck and Wolf Hollow have also become popular as students read more. Some of the books on theis year's list have been quite challengeing (for a number of reasons) but the students in our group are meeting this challenge enthusiastically and are really enjoying debating their favourite books. We have not been able to decide which book we think will win this year. The group agree that this is the hardest year to pick a winner from as the books are all so different and engaging in their own ways. We are looking forward to watching the Carnegie awards live and finding out who wins the 2017 medal.
