Y8 pupils in the school where I am currently working are busily reading the books that have been short-listed for The Carnegie Medal. This is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book for children and the winner will be announced in June.

As the pupils are spending their free time reading, ready to make their own choices for the best book of the year, I thought that I would join in the fun too. After all, reading is fun.

So – this is the shortlist. I will blog my own reviews as I read the books and will decide upon my own choice for the winning book.
