It is the start of a new year & the slideshow below shows you some of the great new books in the library ready for you to borrow. Some that I have read and would highly recommend you check out:
- Wonder by R.J Palacio. Loved this book and would list it as a must read. Read more about it and watch some videos about it here.
- Everyday by David Leviathan “Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.” From Publisher
- Messenger Bird by Ruth Eastham “Cleverly interweaving a modern day storyline with one from the 1940s, it’s the story of Nathan who must find out what the link is between his father’s recent disappearance and that of Lily, an ex-Bletchley Park code breaker, before it’s too late for his dad. The author draws you in to both strands of the story – historical and modern day – with surprising twists and turns and puzzles to solve. With quality writing and a real page-turning quality it’s a book readers will find hard to put down.” Lovereading4kids.co.uk
- When we wake by Karen Healey. “The last thing Tegan remembers is the crack as the gun went off, intense pain, and everything fading to black. One hundred years later, she wakes up. A fast-paced near-future romance. ‘A stirring and century-spanning adventure story that vividly shows how the future is created by our mistakes, our triumphs, and our love.’ – Scott Westerfeld.
