Group Status: We're continuing to read our books and still enjoying them very much! We are holding meetings every Tuesday so that we can all discuss what we are currently reading.

..Our group is a small dedicated group of students from Years 8-11 who all share the same love of and commitment to reading. We meet on a Tuesday every week where we plan to discuss what we are reading. We have decided to buddy up for this year, to make sure everyone has a partner to discuss their books with, preventing spoilers for everyone else.:)

Judge West Midlands: Jessica Dunnicliff

As an avid reader and library user from a very early age, I love that my career has enabled me to encourage children to read for pleasure.

I started my library career in 1997 doing my Sixth Form work experience at my local public library, I was offered a Saturday assistant job straight afterwards and have been working in libraries ever since. I became a qualified Librarian in 2005 and I am currently an Area Librarian for Warwickshire Library and Information Service.

Previously, I worked as a secondary school librarian and ran Carnegie shadowing groups for six years (meeting Patrick Ness was a definite highlight!). I have been on the West Midland YLG committee for several years. I am thrilled to now be part of the judging process!
