World Book Day Quiz 2022 - posted 7th Mar

Hanley Castle High School entered a team of seven into the Worcestershire World Book Day school book quiz. We were provided with the books, ‘I Am The Minotaur’, ‘Wink’, ‘Black Brother, Black Brother’, ‘Skywake Invasion’ and ‘Noor Inayat Khan’, a week before the quiz. Each team member had at least one book to read, and we had to try and remember as many facts about our book as possible. The books I read were ‘I Am The Minotaur’, a modern adaption of Greek mythology’s ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’ and ‘Wink’, which is about a boy struggling to live with a rare eye cancer.
