TY Book Recommendations

Transition Year are now well into their reading for their Extended Essays, due in mid-November. Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be posting brief recommendations from them based on the reading they've done so far. First is Juliana Huggard, who has read Emma Donoghue's 2010 Booker Prize shortlisted novel Room:-

I thought this book was amazing because it was such a different story, yet it happens regularly. I have never read a book like this before. The book is about a boy called Jack who has been born and has lived in this room for five years. and when he eventually goes out he can not really adapt. The book is from Jack's perspective and I have never read a kidnapping from a child's point of view. I think this is an excellent read and would recommend this to anyone but clearly not younger readers than me because it is quite disturbing and I am fifteen and I found it still hard to read at some parts.
