Mrs Moeller, Skinners' Kent Academy Shadowers


I was surprised to see a Barrington Stoke title shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, but having read it I can appreciate why. Although a relatively simple, and perhaps even predictable storyline, I was impressed with the powerful language and how compelling a read it was.
I like real life drama as a genre and this book has it all: family issues, first crush, sibling relationship, bullying, you name it. On the whole it is a realistic story, except perhaps for one of the main characters seemingly changing very quickly. I think this book can be universally appealing to all genders and ages, which makes it even more attractive to me as a librarian.
