Calling Keen Readers in Years 7 & 8

HMS would like to take part in The North East Book Awards 2023. The Awards are the North East’s version of the Carnegie Greenaway Medal: children read a shortlist of five nominated books and vote for the winner. Last year, Phil Earle won with ‘When The Sky Falls’. This is a really exciting opportunity to read a range of books, take part in discussions and be the judge. 
The timeline is swift with reading/reviewing in April, students then voting for their favourites and winners announced mid-June. Participating schools are invited to the event in Newcastle. The short-list has just been announced:
  • The Haunting of Tyrese Walker – J P Rose
  • Resist – Tom Palmer
  • Truth or Dare – Sophie McKenzie
  • Fight Back – A M Dassu
  • Read Between the Lies – Malcolm Duffy
