I'm starting my PGCE soon and have advised to catch up on books that are popular for KS3 kids to read. So far I have Sachar's Holes, Almond's Skellig, Morpurgo's Private Peaceful and Stone cold (can't remember the author) on my list. Any other suggestions?

Do you want the books that non-readers read, or books that readers read? Can ask 14 y/o DD if it would be helpful (in yr 9, on the school library team so knows what everyone reads!).

I know the Youtuber books are very popular with non-readers - dd has mentioned them making displays with them to encourage more pupils into the library - and that there was steep competition over their copy of Girl Online.
