The LRC Reading Group for Y8-11 have been part of the Cheshire Book Awards, since its beginning, and have found it an important focus for staff and pupils alike!
Run by the Cheshire Education Library Service its aim is to promote the enjoyment of reading through reading groups in schools.
Books eligible for the award must have been published in the past 18 months, still be in print, have been written by an author living in the UK and be a stand-alone read.
The group has six months to read the shortlisted books from the launch in October to the Award Ceremony in June, voting for their favourite title.
This year's shortlisted books can be found on the Cheshire Education Library Service website.
