In their library lesson this month some of our Year 8 students took part in a video conference with author Karen McCombie.
Karen discussed Little Bird Flies, her 93rd published novel and Sunday Times’ children’s book of the week. Little Bird lives on the remote Scottish Island of Tornish, a crofter’s daughter with a secret. Although she loves her island’s wild seas and big skies, she dreams of leaving – for America and the freedom of the New World. The new Laird of the island is cruel and dangerous. Little Bird must escape in search of a new life. But the journey is hard; what does the future hold for her?
