Ignis Library hosted the launch party for the students who are shadowing the Carnegie Medal for the best book published last year. It was the first time all the team had got together from across different classes and years. Shadowers from last year who were keen to do it again this year were a bonus to the group.
The winner will be announced in June. Students will be busy as there are 8 books to be read.
