Taylor Reading Icons.
Group status: We're all sweating as we're all working hard and it is 4000000 degrees. This is our last meeting and we're all very giggly today. We're finishing up our blogs and reviews and we;re sad Carnegie is over for another year.

Taylor Reading Icons 2018

We're a group of quirk and different individuals who all enjoy reading, sharing our views & opinions of those books. First we have Nicole, the library's her happy place and she's obsessively tidy and always makes sure her books are in perfect condition. She's a reader as she can't draw to save her life, in her own words. Moving to Vladimir when he decides to remember or not be late. He is like a computer genius which comes in handy and when he's not reading he's gaming or eating pizza which he obviously loves, because, come on, who doesn't? Next the most sensible of the group is Sarah. Sarah is quiet and the kindest person in the world. She loves Si-Fi books and when in a bookshop she always heads to young adult without doubt. The we have Jamie who is a great asset to the team. He loves reading so much that he can hardly put books down and ends up finishing them rapidly. He is fascinated by science and loves to play video games as well. Next is Blair who is a quick, witty and sacrcastic person. This is his second year in Carnegie and he still likes to make people laugh. He is also in love with science and finds it hard to fit Carnegie in with science club where he's dissecting an eyeball. Lastly me, Amy, I find there's nothing better than being curled up watching a good film or a book. I'm a fan-girl as I adore Marvel movies, Harry Potter series, the Hobbit & Narnia and loads more. I cry at almost everything so my books and cinema tickets are crumpled with wet tears! For me a bookshop is home and the cinema, a way to escape.

Winning Year: 2016

Grace and Tippi are conjoined twins. And their lives are about to change. No longer able to afford homeschooling, they must venture into the world - a world of stares, sneers and cruelty. Will they find more than that at school? Can they find real friends
