The s1-s2 (aged 12-13) Book Thieves are a keen group of readers. I am trying to weigh up whether or not they can actually read a book without a cup of tea in front of them. Like me. At the moment we are reading and reviewing the Carnegie Medal shortlist, starting with Trash by Andy Mulligan. Trash is about three boys living in a dumpsite in Manila. It goes on to explain from each character’s point of view the events that will shape the course of their futures forever. Will they find a better life? What is the mysterious find they stumble across whilst raking through the trash? Can you still have hope in the most miserable of circumstances?
I am going to
make ask them to comment on our Greenfaulds blog at lunchtime. I reckon they’ll get really excited at the idea of their comments being made visible not just to us at Greenfaulds but potentially the WHOLE WORLD!!!
