Carnegie Shadowing 2008

The Shortlist has been announced.
The Books have arrived.


It's that time of year again when we get the chance not only to read some of the best books of the past year, but we get to tell the world what we think of them. Using our very own space on the Carnegie Shadowing website (see the link in the grey box on the right) we can post our thoughts, praise and criticism of each book. There are already a few reviews posted. You can also check out the views of hundreds of other schools in the UK.

Pictures of the shorlisted books are below. Find out more about them at
The winner will be announced at the end of June.
