Shadowing group looks forward to the winner being announced

Following the Trinity Schools Book Award in the Autumn and Spring Terms, we've continued to meet to shadow the Carnegie Award and gained quite a few extras along the way. We like to start Wednesday mornings with orange juice, brioche and some good old book chat. We are mostly First and Second Years with very eclectic tastes from horror to humour. Regardless we are up for trying anything and there are few books we won't try. Salt to the Sea was our favourite so we are delighted that it is this year's winner!
