So last week I talked about a couple of books that we’d written, that I was proud of for very different reasons. Here are another two I’m proud of. For two more different reasons.
First up, ‘Perfect Nightmare’ from Greycourt School in Richmond. This was very important to me because it’s the first book done completely under the White Water Writers project. They located the school, contacted the volunteers and did all the organizational work to ensure a smooth camp. I’m looking forward to many more like that! The book was wonderfully put together by some very good young writers and the result is this:
…and, of course, it can be found on Amazon!
The second one is pretty special too. Keele University worked with a group of schoolchildren from the age of 12 to 15, all of whom came from foster care.
I’m astonished at the quality of writing they produced (Amazon link) and I leave you with this comment by one of the writers.
I am 15 years old. I go to Trentham High School. I am currently captain of a street dance group. I live in a small group home with my carers. They can be a pain but I love them. I have been involved in writing this book. In the book my character is Destiny. I chose this character because I could relate her to my life at the moment. We are teenagers that have done this book so you teens that are out there ,theres nothing stopping you doing the same; just follow your dreams and you may go far. So buy this book and tell people about it because it may make a difference to other peoples lives .
