After the fire carnegie book choiceOn  Monday 11th June our shadowing group was joined by pupils from six local schools to debate and then vote for their favourite book. College pupils acted as group leaders and channelled the animated discussion with their peers.  After 45 minutes of heated debate and a break for cookies and drinks while the vote was counted, the winner was announced to be After the Fire  by Will Hill.  

The decision of the national judges will be announced next Monday; it will be interesting to see if they agree with us!
