This week, I’m celebrating …
Favourite Sentence from Page 11:
I sat with my feet spread apart so that I could spit the sunflower-seed shells on the ground between them.
This book in three words:
FRIENDSHIP, RESILIENCE, BELONGING
I read this absolutely stunning story as part of Believathon at the end of last year, and boy, does it tear at the heartstrings!
This is the incredibly uplifting story of a young teenager, Ghost (Castle Cranshaw) who has had a very difficult, heart-breaking start in life, yet through his strength and resilience and the support of some important role models in his life, turns a corner which sees him giving himself the opportunity to realise his potential.
This is a story that I would highly recommend: you can read my review HERE.
I’d love if anyone who wants to give this meme a go would comment in the comments box and include a link to your post so I can visit, comment and find some great middle-grade recommendations. If you do create a post and are on Twitter, and would like to share your post, please use the hashtag #MGTakesOnThursday so I can find it, read it and share it!
