This year at school, there is a book challenge called 8 for 8. It is extremely similar to last year’s 7 for 7 book challenge, except this one has eight books and more things you can do to enter.
The books are:
- Scavengers by Darren Simpson
- The Skylarks War by Hilary McKay
- The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burge
- The Island by M. A. Bennet
- Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow by Siobhan Curham
- Bone Talk by Candy Gourlay
- Everything All At Once by Steven Camden (aka Polarbear)
- And The Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick Ness
These eight books are all set from different perspectives and times. Everything All At Once is a book of poetry telling a story about school life. The Skylarks war has romance and history. There are many other things that make each book unique.
The things you can do to enter are:
- Film a book trailer video
- Make a piece of artwork
- Write a piece of creative writing
- Perform a performance
- Write a blog or a review
- Film a booktalking video
- Or absolutely anything else!
These have to be based on your favourite 8 for 8 book, to try and encourage more people to read that book.
