Josh discovers the power of books

This is Josh.  Josh is in year 12 and has avoided his librarian's pleas to begin a great book, he has been a book non-believer during his time at King's High School.  That is until now!  Josh made the decision the other day to have a go at The Hunger Games but, even though we have 12 copies of that book in stock, there were none available because they were all issued.  Having made the decision to read a book he went along with my idea that I could find him a book he would enjoy just as much as The Hunger Games and he went away with How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff.  He has been back every day since he took it out to tell me how great the book is.  He can't wait to get back to the story to find out more and he says his family can't believe that he is reading instead of watching TV or listening to music.  Josh came in today to talk to me about the book, where he is up to, how much he loves the characters and how much he has read.  Here is a photo of him with the book and you can see from his gorgeous smile how excited he is.  He keeps saying "How come I didn't know books were this cool Miss!"
