Group status: We're reading a lot.
We have a lively Library based Book Club, following the Carnegie Book Awards every Year. We have managed to pick the winner of the awards for the last three years running! Our group is made up of Years 7 to 11 students, with thirty of us currently involved in the Shadowing activity - we make sure that we always have plenty of cakes for our weekly meeting! We enjoy reviewing the latest publications, especially nominated titles for book awards. We are really looking forward to seeing this year's shortlist and then the fun begins.

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.
