Group status: Enjoying this year's titles!
Carnegie Medal 2014
Yesterday our school got the Carnegie books delivered; we are so excited to read them! Some pupils described the covers as vibrant, colourful and detailed. One person in particular who is currently reading ‘Ghost Hawk’ said it’s fantastic, she never reads books but she is absolutely hooked. “I can’t put it down” she told me. At the minute ‘Ghost Hawk’ seems to be the class favourite, I think this is because there is a lot of mystery to it. On the blurb it just has 3 words “Memory, Mystery, Murder” this gives suspense and makes you want to read on. When I interviewed one pupil he said they are much better than last year because they are different and very detailed, they tell you quite a lot about the story and leaves you wondering what’s going to happen next? Another popular choice was ‘The Bunker Diaries’ “It sounds really good and intriguing; I love it because it’s actually written like you are reading somebody’s diary”. More to come soon, I’m too busy reading now! (Isobel Y8)
