Carnegie Shortlist

2020 CILIP Carnegie Medal shortlist (alphabetical by author surname):

Here is the list of 8 books that have made the Carnegie shortlist this year. It would be amazing to hear from students (and parents!) who have read any of them. Why not write a review and we can put them on the website? I have started with Lark. For a short novel, it's packed with emotion; I definitely recommend it. I look forward to hearing from you!
