Release is about a teenager, Adam Thorn, whose sexuality is questioned by his father's religious beliefs. The book focuses on his struggle with family, friendship and love. It also tells the story of another teenager, called Katie, who is host to a spirit called the 'Queen'. Each chapter switches between the two lives. By Elizabeth Musgrave

The hate u give
The hate u give is about a sixteen year old girl called Star that witnessed her friend's murder. It tells the story of her fight for her friend's justice and how she is coping with her life. I read this book before the shadowing took place and loved it instantly. It is an amazing book and I really recommend it. By Elizabeth Musgrave

'Rook'.... the book
The first chapter of this book was A-MA-ZING! I felt that the topic was kind of taken away from the rook itself, although I liked the type of characters that the author used and the way in which they interacted with each other. It was very short, but I quite enjoyed it, although it wouldn't be my top choice to win. By Hannah Britton

After 'After the Fire'
'After the Fire' is a dramatic story of Moonbeam's recovery after escaping The Lord's Legion: a Christian cult that destroys its members' relationship with the Outside. The differentiation between the chapters' time frame really makes you think about this 16 year old's experience when she later talks about it. Overall, the author Will Hill is able to give an in-depth insight into the mind of a traumatized teen and how she opens up about her experiences to aid her recovery. By Talyn Baker

Beyond 'Beyond the Bright Sea' by Lauren Wolk
This was the first book I read in the shadowing program. It's about a girl called Crow who lives on an island which she washed up on when she was a baby. She had three things with her: a ruby ring, remnants of a letter and a feather birthmark. The story is about her quest to find out where she came from, and whether her family are even still alive. I enjoyed the book because it combines talking about Crow's current life with her past, and which is more important... by Hannah Britton
