Welcome to our Anniversary Blog by resident blogger Jake Hope. Jake will be reading and reviewing all of the past CILIP Carnegie Medal winning books during the anniversary year.

Why we chose this book ...

"We are adopting this book because the author went to our school. It is very inspiring to think that a pupil from Manchester High School for Girls went on to be an award-winning author. We will be reading the book during Feb and Mar 2017."
