On Friday 23rd August, Miss Lawrie took the Junior Book Club to the Edinburgh Book Festival to see MUHAMMAD KHAN & TOM POLLOCK: VIRTUAL REALITIES. Authors of two gripping and powerful new novels, they were taking a look at the world of internet-based relationships, rapturous online fandoms and cyber bullying.
In Book Club we read I am Thunder, Khan’s first novel and really enjoyed it. Having listened to him talk about his new book, Kick the Moon, we would really like to read this with the Book Club too!
