CCSC Book Club attended their annual event literary event at RAF Cosford. A Celebration Day in which fourteen schools from across Staffordshire came together to celebrate their passion for reading, and to showcase short films that they had made to promote the six shortlisted titles.  

Our students had chosen to advocate Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. A powerful and captivating novel about History’s deadliest and mostly forgotten World War 2 Maritime disaster.

After all the votes were counted the final results were:

1st - Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones
2nd - Salt to the Sea by Ruth Sepetys
3rd - The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon
4th - Midnight Gang by David Walliams
5th - A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater
6th - Girl Online: Going Solo by Zoe Sugg

Guest author Gareth P. Jones who attended the Celebration Day, and kept his audience thoroughly entertained, said that he was ‘delighted and stunned to win’.
