Perfect things to Read over the Summer holidays

Students, and staff, are encouraged to borrow books from the MRC over the Summer Break.

The more reading you manage to do over the holiday period the less likely your reading level will drop.

After all practice makes perfect and reading is just like any other skill if you don’t practice you can get rusty.

An edgy and contemporary thriller about the life changing dangers of knife crime – and that’s just for the witness. When Ty tells the police what he has seen, his life is changed forever. His enemies are ruthless and will stop at nothing to prevent Ty from testifying. Given a new look, new names and a new past, Ty and his mother make a fresh start. But forgetting Ty and remembering to be Joe is hard. Ty tells his story of familiar teenage experiences – school friendships, bullying, falling in love – against a terrifying background in which letting out the secret could mean the end. How Joe survives and grows and, in particular, how he befriends the lonely Claire whose self-harming is an equally important secret, is touching.
