The groups eventually voted for THEIR winner, which turned out to be The Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley. Here are Mrs Wood and Mrs Vaux with their amazing reading barometer showing the results of our vote:

Thank you so much to Mrs Gibson, Mrs Vaux and Mrs Wood and of course Backwell School’s book group for making us so welcome. We are already looking forward to next year, when it is our turn to host!
