Book Buddies in front of our Library

The Book Buddies are a reading group in Broughty Ferry, Scotland. We have recently split into two sections, junior (Age 8-11) and senior (Age 12-15). The Senior Group:- Our members are Lucy (X3), Niamh, Alyssa, Stella and Grace. Our favourite books are: Lucy M (13) - All the Harry Potters! Lucy W (13) - Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. Stella (13) - Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix by J K Rowling Grace (13) - The Wind on Fire Trilogy by William Nicollson. Alyssa (12) - Summer's Dream by Cathy Cassidy Lucy A (15) - 11.22.63 by Stephen King. The Junior group:- The Junior group was created because the seniors all got older and there was a need for the children's section. Our members are Rebecca, Darcie, Connie, Robbie, Aiden and Riley. We like reading mostly comedy books! Right now, we're reading lots of Michael Morpurgo books and we like doing puzzles, quizzes and games. Both groups are looking forward to shadowing The Carnegie and Greenaway awards!
