This week’s recommended reading is by senior student librarian and Year 11 pupil Teegan Shires.  She has selected The Freedom Writers’ Diary by Erin Gruwell.  Teegan writes, “I love this book because it shows how an English teacher inspires pupils to make their lives better.  This non-fiction text uses extracts from the diaries of a group of American teenagers who live in a run-down area.  They begin to learn new things which change their outlook and improve their prospects.  This is life-affirming and inspirational.  Try it.”

Yours sincerely
