Battle to the book fest for St Ninian’s bookworms

You read stories about heroes and champions — but what if you were the person sitting two rows behind Harry Potter in class? (writes Toni McLaughlin, S6 at St Ninian’s High)

Patrick Ness’ new book The Rest of Us Just Live Here confronts the serious issues of teenagers today while adding humour throughout the story.

Our trip to meet with him at the Edinburgh International Book Festival was almost as heroic as we ventured through torrential rain and howling winds. This was an incredible experience and a great opportunity to meet a fantastic author.

Thanks to our two brilliant librarians, Mrs Baird and Mrs Mundie, for arranging a great day.
