An enormous buzz of excitement is radiating through Badger Towers as our second series of YA Reads have arrived!
You know a new series is going to be good when you walk through the library at dinner time and see several members of staff reading them.
The mature themes touching on sexuality/identity, family breakdown, friendship/relationship issues and dystopia speak and appeal to readers across many different interests.
