Recommendations

Back to School

Summer is drawing to a close and it's back to school. What will you be reading this term? What will you be recommending?

The Rugby World Cup is just around the corner and a book with rugby as its main theme is a good place to start. Try Winger by Andrew Smith or The Prince Who walked with Lions by Elizabeth Laird.You could also try some autobiographies of rugby players.

Perhaps you are worried about going back to school and fitting in - read Being a Girl by Hayley Long. It's funny but also full of helpful advice and it does put school life in perspective. Also look at Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume an excellent storu which looks at the things you worry about when you become a teenager. 

Maybe you're off to boarding school for the first time - read Spud by John van de Ruit. Hopefully your boarding school is not like Spud's but the book will make you laugh out loud. 

If you would like to impress your teacher by reading a classic, you can find a number of books here but I have a soft spot for Call of the Wild by Jack London and The Outsiders by S E Hinton..

Finally, if you are want to catch up on new publications look at the Latest Reviews on BT&M. I would recommend One by Sarah Crossan because it is so unusual or Sunkissed by Jenny McLachlan because it is a laugh and a lovely memory of summer.
