My son starts secondary school in September. We recently went to a parents evening there to hear about the school and meet the teachers. It looks fantastic, I was very impressed. They sent a booklet home for us, and him, with lots of information in it about the school and the process of transitioning into it. In the booklet I found a 'recommended reading' list, which of course I had to take a close look at. I thought the recommendations were brilliant, a really good variety of genres. The booklet also mentioned about how important reading is to students and how they will be encouraging them to read at every opportunity. Which as a booklover and bookshop owner is great to hear!
I've turned the recommended reading list they provided into a Bookshop.org
Whilst I'm on the topic of recommended reading I came across this book, which recommended books, for YA genre fans. This book is available here on Bookshop.org and here on the Betty's Books website.
