YOUNG ADULTS HURRICANE BOOK CLUB

Our school has been asked to be part of a trial of book club in Midlothian. It is open to S2 pupils and above. There are 2 books you would read – I Am Thunder by M Khan and Goodbye Perfect by S Bernard. You then review them. In addition, there would then be 2 after school meetings running 4pm to 5pm on the 5 November and the 21 November. So as well as reading the books there is a bit of extra commitment required because of the after school meetings. If anyone is interested please see Mr Smith in the Library. Thanks.
