Chapter and Verse (Thomas Cowley High School)
Donington, Lincs
Group status: Read our reviews below and let us recommend a book to you! You don't have to be mad on sci-fi and like futuristic trains that can travel through time...but it helps! Railhead is far and away the group favourite (at the moment...)

A group of friendly Year 7, 8 and 9 students who enjoy reading across a number of genres and discussing if we liked -or not!- the books we read! We meet once a fortnight on Wednesday mornings for a chat, hot chocolate, cookies...and some work!

Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth by Rowan S
In my opinion, the book 'Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth' is so stupid, it's funny. The book is filled with weird stuff that doesn't quite make sense . . .
