Jane (janeboniface) | 123 comments Well. If you haven't caught up with the posts on the School Lib ListServ, the upshot is that Scholastic seem to have made a mistake including this book in the Intermediate Standing Order. I've just finished reading it, and it's a beautifully written story from a highly respected author - but, it is a book written for adults. It even says that on the back cover. If you have received it as part of the NZSO and have already added it to your collection, I would suggest you grab it and read it and decide if you think it is appropriate for your students. I suspect many of us will be sending our copies back to Scholastic.

Zac (zackids) | 18 comments Chris, the South Island Scholastic rep has said that Scholastic are recalling it and will be replacing it. Good to know they have listened to feedback.
