The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks
This is a very powerful and disturbing book but it has proved extremely popular with my Year 8 class. A lot of them have requested a copy. It is a deserving winner of the Carnegie in my view, even though I can see why it took so long to get published, because it is unremittingly bleak and grim.

Linus is a 15 year old lad who is abducted and imprisoned in an underground bunker. He appears to be help prisoner and gradually comes to learn how best to survive, at the whim of his captor.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Philips 5W (50W) GU10 Master LED Value Spot Light,&hellip by Philips
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bulb creates a really nice warm light, not like the usual LED bulbs. It gives plenty of light output for its size and it will save me lots of money because it's only 5W. I have put it in the study light alongside two regular LED bulbs and they look really white and glaring in comparison. I don't know about you, but I hate these really white lights, so I am thrilled to bits with this one. It is a shame the price is still so high and they are still so dear, but cheap ones don't work. I have tried them and they are just not bright enough!
