Plymouth College:
Plymouth, Devon
Group status: Just getting started!

Students from year 8 have started to read their first book. We've only been running our group for a week and some are nearly ready to read their second. We meet every week to discuss the books, debate about a certain aspect of the books we've read, create wall displays and write reviews. Our English teacher, Mrs Murphy, has even organised for us to have a reading session with our neighbouring junior school Hyde Park so that we can share the Carnegie and Greenway books we have been reading.

Title: The Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman
Winning Year: 2010

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, would be a completely normal boy if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts. For it is in the land of the living that real danger lurks, a danger that has already killed Bod's family.
