The group :)

Hi - We are Overton Grange High School in Sutton, Surrey. We are a group of Y7 - Y9 students shadowing the Carnegie Medal. This is our tenth year and each year it gets better! We really enjoy doing it. We meet every Wednesday lunchtime in the library over lunch. We like that! We think there are quite a few interesting books on the shortlist this year and are looking foward to reading them, posting our reveiws, reading the reviews of other groups and finding out which book will win the Carnegie Medal! Maybe one year we will guess right!!
