This year’s Carnegie Medal Shortlist has been announced and we will be shadowing the prize with Year 8. The CILIP Carnegie Medal is the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book award, awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people.
All year 8 students at KAS are asked to read at least one of the shortlisted titles and will be exploring and discussing all of them over the next three months, with library visits during their English lessons. We hope they will all make a start during the Easter break.
The short list is as follows:
One by Sarah Crossan
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Five Children on the Western Front by Kate Saunders
The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley
Fire Colour One by Jenny Valentine
