An enthusiastic group of Year 9 students have embarked upon an interactive reading experience through the National Teen Book Club, hosted by Ms Casement. In their weekly meeting, students discuss their thoughts and feelings about the newly published novel, If Tomorrow Doesn’t Come by Jen St. Jude. As well as sharing their ideas with each other, they also have the opportunity to engage with other students reading the book, from all over the country.
As part of the programme, the students recently had an online Q&A with Human Rights Barrister, Adam Wagner. He was such an interesting and inspiring man. We were all keen to pursue his top ten book recommendations.
In the final week of this term’s meetings, the students will be able to interview the author of the book we are reading, Jen St. Jude. This is an incredible opportunity for the keen readers and aspiring writers to speak to a published author of teenage fiction.
