Jonathan Stroud The Outlaws

J5 pupil Becky has had a book review published by Books Up North. 

Becky has written a compelling review of Jonathan Stroud’s book The Outlaws Scarlett & Browne. Set in a broken, future England, the story is the first title in a fantasy teen series with a feisty female heroine. 

Becky’s review vividly brings to life the central characters and cleverly explores the central themes of the book, without revealing the plot. According to Becky, ‘if you enjoy comedy, mixed with thrilling action, this is the book for you.”

Andy Falconer, Head of St Peter’s 8-13, said: “I’m delighted with the initiative Becky has shown in getting involved with the Books Up North Kids’ Review Panel. She’s enjoyed writing the review and was thrilled when Jonathan Stroud mentioned her in a tweet!” 

Sarah Tyson, from Books Up North, said: “Jonathan’s book is not published yet but after reading Becky’s brilliant review we’re sure you’ll add it to your reading list!”  

Jonathan Stroud is an award-winning author of two internationally bestselling series. The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne will be published later this spring by Walker Books.
