Group status: Everyone's read as many books as they can fit in around exams and stuff and the votes are in. FIve Children just aced it by a whisker ahead of The Lie Tree but Lies We Tell Ourselves and One were very close!

Some of this year's readers

12 readers from Years 7-11. (The Year 11s haven't really got time to do this but we just can't stop them reading!) We have been enjoying reading all of the books this time around. Most of these books we would all like to reread at some point.

Title: Tom's Midnight Garden
Author: Philippa Pearce
Winning Year: 1958

When his brother Peter gets measles, 14-year-old Tom Long is sent to stay with his uncle and aunt in Ely. They live in a first-floor flat in what was once a grand manor house, now run down. One night Tom hears the old grandfather clock in the hallway strike 13. Creeping downstairs, he finds the house restored to its former glory and outside stretches a huge sunlit garden.
